Death from char kuey teow at M’sian-founded eatery


ABOUT a dozen patrons at a restaurant in Taiwan ended up with food poisoning after eating its signature dish of char kuey teow, China Press reported.

Apparently, one of them died while another two are in critical condition after their meal on Tuesday.

The eatery in Taipei was founded by a Malaysian.

According to Chang Gung Memorial Hospital’s Clinical Poison Centre director Dr Yan Zonghai, they are still trying to pinpoint the exact cause of the food poisoning.

Dr Yan also cautioned food operators to keep cooked food and raw ingredients apart.

Taipei Mayor Chiang Wan-an said they had sent health officers to the premises and closed all of the restaurant’s branches until the investigation concludes.

He said the authorities had traced the source of the offending ingredient to a wholesaler in New Taipei City.

Efforts are being made to find out if the said ingredient had been supplied to other restaurants as well.

“Right now, we have to schedule it... Can’t be as spontaneous as before,” she said in response to questions from fans on how motherhood has affected her romantic life.

“Even so, our relationship is still very sweet,” said Lin, 25, who gave birth in January.

Lin said that becoming a mother made her feel grown up as she now has a whole new set of responsibilities.

She added that she enjoys being a mother and that she would want three to four children.

Lin tied the knot with 37-year-old Tai, who hails from Parit Buntar, Perak, in September last year.
