A total of 110 students from a university college in Bandar Seri Putra, Kajang, Selangor have sought treatment at the Serdang Hospital after experiencing stomach ache, diarrhoea and vomiting due to suspected food poisoning.

They comprised 90 female and 20 male students undergoing an induction week programme for diploma and degree courses.

“The students started complaining of abdominal pain and vomiting after Maghrib prayers yesterday, and the college management brought them to the Serdang Hospital at 8.30pm for treatment,” said a college official when met by Bernama today.

He said today it was the fourth day of their orientation programme.

“Over the course of the induction week, the college sources the meals from an off-campus catering service,” he said, adding that all the victims were recovering well after treatment.
