Pune- Around 200 guests were hospitalized due to food poisoning after a housewarming party in Satara’s Mhaswad. The patients have been immediately admitted to various hospitals. While some of them are showing an improvement, others remain in critical condition.

The incident took place after a housewarming ceremony on Monday afternoon, followed by a lunch that extended late into the night. Shortly after food consumption, the children of the house owner started experiencing symptoms like nausea, stomach ache, vomiting, and diarrhea. Two others who had also eaten at the party showed similar symptoms and promptly sought medical treatment. Soon the number of patients increased to 200, all of whom received immediate treatment at the primary health center and three private hospitals.

In response, the catering service provider visited the hospitals where the affected individuals were admitted assuring them that their medical expenses would be covered. The medical personnel quickly informed the taluka medical officer, police authorities, and hospital administrations about the situation. Samples of rice, vegetables, gulab jamun, chapati, and water were also collected for testing to determine the cause.
