One hundred and twelve primary school students on Friday suffered food poisoning in Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, local health authorities said on Saturday.
The students are now out of danger, doctors said.
The incident occurred on Friday noon in Xinjie Primary School in Songhua Township of Panlong District. One hundred and twelve students showed symptoms of dizziness, vomiting and stomachache after having lunch at their school canteen.
Forty-six of them were in serious condition and were sent to a nearby hospital in Aziying Town in Songming County for medical treatment.
All of them are out of danger, but one has been transferred to Panlong District Hospital for further treatment, a doctor said.
The four cooks of the school canteen do not have certificates, and some students' parents believed that unsanitary cooking should be blamed for the incident.
Investigation into the cause of the incident is under way, saida local health official.
