Headmaster suspended after 300 students ill

THE headmaster of a primary school in central China has been suspended from duty after more than 300 students suffered food poisoning after breakfast yesterday.

Local police have launched an investigation on the incident.

The sixth-grade students of Lianchun Primary School in Yexian County of Henan Province started to feel stomach aches and began vomiting about half an hour after having cakes, steamed buns and congee in the school canteen, China National Radio reported today.

The school sent the students to hospital.

Initial investigations revealed that the cakes were made on December 15 but had passed their use-by date.

About 10 students remained in hospital while the others returned to school or went home.
