Inculcating culture of food safety among children


RECENTLY, a Form Five student and a two-year-old girl died after eating food that was prepared for an event held in a school in Gombak. It was reported that 82 others who attended the event were treated for food poisoning.

Failure to adhere to food safety regulations has led to an increase in reported food poisoning cases, especially in school settings, in Malaysia. Data from the Health Ministry showed an annual incidence of 50.90 per 100,000 population and a mortality rate of 0.03 per 100,000 population in 2019.
