Police struck by food poisoning

AROUND FORTY Interior Ministry and police headquarters employees visited their doctors over the weekend due to diarrhea likely related to a lunch that was served at a police canteen on May 23.

Interior Ministry spokesman Ján Bazovský said on May 27 that the cause of the police gastric problems and high fevers could be either the meat they ate or the dressing served with their salads.

Bazovský added that two of the 40 had to be hospitalised, several had to stay home or leave work early because of stomach problems. Interior Ministry spokesman Jozef Sitár assured the public that the incident would not threaten the working of either institution.
