More than 1,000 inmates at Osaka Prison in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture, were left sick after they were struck with food poisoning.
1,074 inmates at Osaka Prison in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture, fell sick to food poisoning on Tuesday and Wednesday. As a result, the prison was forced to serve preserved food that was meant to be used in emergencies.
According to the Japan Times, inmates at the prison started to complain about symptoms associated with food poisoning on Tuesday night. Prison officials then contacted the health center on Wednesday morning.
Sources say that the inmates were treated at the prison. The prison houses over 2,000 male inmates. The meals are cooked by about 40 inmates, and they all go through monthly sanitary inspections.
The kitchen’s operations were suspended for three days, beginning Thursday. During that time, the prison will be serving food that is meant for emergencies.
