Insure Against Poisoning

CONSUMERS who suffer food poisoning in certain situations can expect to have their medical bills covered by the company responsible.

The city's draft of food safety regulations encourages producers and sellers of infants' food and raw aquatic products, large-scale caterers and meal distribution businesses to buy the food quality insurance.
