    Award the tenders on the recommendation of the P.H.II. and the M.O.H. Office.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 19 August 2012 02:33 PM

    These things happen because of the greed of contractors to supply contaminated food and make more profits - and also to give commissions to those who pass the tender.

    Those who prepare food should be well trained in hygiene, food handleing ect.Hygiene is very important andalso temperatures of food should be taken as a factor for this type of poisoning.

    Relevant authorities must investigate the case and the defaulters must be punished and victims must be compensated.

    The curse of the food packets!

    Sri Lanka is free falling to the bottom of third world food safety standards rankings. Glass of milk looks like the suspect.

    A good intent turned bad. Please don't stop giving food packets and milk to the students, but give them good ones.
