As many as 15 women workers of textile unit near here suffered from diarrhoea on Thursday and were admitted to taluk government hospital at Palladam.

All of them were discharged in the evening.

The women, staying at the hostel run by the management of the textile unit, complained that the dinner provided to them on Wednesday caused them diarrhoea.

When contacted, Deputy Director of Health N. Ragupathy told The Hindu that the dinner was actually consumed by 150 workers of the same unit and of them only 15 vomited.

Dry fish

Hence, a preliminary inquiry was conducted and it was found that the 15 women had consumed dried fish procured from outside, he said.
