More than 50 students from Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University in east China's city of Fuzhou suffered food poisoning after having their meals in the university canteen on Monday.
The campus hospital has received 54 students who claimed to suffer diarrhea, sick up and nausea since 10:00 AM Monday, according to the clinic.
A student said he was haunted by diarrhea and sick up from 7:00 AM Monday just after having supper in the university's canteen on Sunday.
Zhou Tao, vice head of the campus hospital, said the students might suffer some acute gastroenteritis and added that the majority of the students felt better after dextrose transfusion and some simple remedies.
The provincial disease prevention and control center, together with the city's epidemic prevention station, have collected samples from the sick students to investigate the cause of the food poisoning.
