Ministry orders investigation of severe food poisoning caused by vegan pâté

HCM CITY — The National Agro-Forestry-Fisheries Quality Assurance Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development on Tuesday instructed departments of agriculture and rural development in provinces and cities and Food Safety Management Boards in HCM City, Đà Nẵng and Bắc Ninh to work together to resolve the food poisoning cases of Minh Chay vegan pâté.

The product was contaminated with Clostridium botulinum type B bacteria, which produces dangerous toxins blocking nerve functions, which can lead to respiratory and muscular paralysis and even death.

Dr Nguyễn Văn Hảo, head of the department of emergency aid - intensive resuscitation - treatment of poisoning for adults at the city Hospital for Tropical Diseases, said the mortality rate is up to  二0 per cent of contaminated patients.

Minh Chay vegan pâté is made by the Lối sống mới Company in Hà Nội.  

The Việt Nam Food Administration has ordered health departments and management boards to recall the product and  一 二 others of the company.

The administration has told Hà Nội police to investigate and treat the problem.

In HCM City, the Food Safety Management Board had identified  一, 二 九0 people who bought  一, 五 五 九 boxes of vegan pâté as of Tuesday, Phạm Khánh Phong Lan, the board’s head, said at a press meeting on Tuesday.
