Prima Deli serves up salmonella birthday cake

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 4, 2007

Twenty-three of the 30 family members at the gathering suffered severe food poisoning after eating the birthday cake, a 1.5kg salmonella-laced chocolate cake with nuts from bakery chain Prima Deli.

Among those felled was an 11-month-old baby, who was so ill he had to be admitted to the National University Hospital for three days.

The rest had to put up with fever, diarrhea, shivering and even breathing difficulties, in between repeated visits to their family doctors.

Miss Anizah Yusof, 19, one of the family members who had been stricken, reckons her four-day illness to be the worst episode of diarrhoea she has ever had.

She said: ‘I was also very giddy and couldn’t walk properly, so I just lay down on the bed. It was also very difficult to breathe.’ (story)
