Tainted frozen food sickens hundreds in Japan

Published: 01.08.14, 07:36 / Israel News

Hundreds of people fell sick across Japan after eating frozen food that may have been tainted with a pesticide. Food maker Maruha Nichiro Holdings used full-page ads in major newspapers Wednesday apologizing and warning consumers not to eat any of the tainted food, including pizza, croquettes and pancakes manufactured at a factory in Gunma Prefecture, north of Tokyo.


The company began recalling 6.4 million packages of various frozen foods on December 29, saying it found some were tainted by high levels of malathion, a pesticide. (AP)
