TANGKAK: About 25 people came down with food poisoning after eating nasi lemak and murtabak bought from a night market here.
Most were given out-patient treatment at Tangkak Hospital but a Year One pupil allegedly died.
It is learnt that Fakhira Barisya Zainal Abidin, seven, her father and mother suffered serious food poisoning after eating the nasi lemak.
According to her uncle Mohammed Fadzir Moktar, 27, the girl’s father, Zainal Abidin Alami, 35, and mother are being warded at Putra Hospital in Batu Pahat.
He said Zainal Abidin, a lecturer at the Mara College here, had bought the nasi lemak from a stall on March 31 and started purging soon after.
“When he went to wake Fakhira Barisya up on the morning of April 2, she was already dead,” Mohammed Fadzir said yesterday.
State Women, Family, Health and Community Development Committee chairman Dr Robia Kosai said the Health Department had temporarily suspended the trader’s licence.
She said a detailed investigation would be carried out to determine the cause of the family’s illness.
Ledang police chief Supt Haron Idris said police had yet to determine the cause of death.
