Food poisoning cases kill 6, hospitalize 74 in China

Outbreaks of food poisoning have killed six people in one Chinese province and put 74 in hospital in another province, state media said Monday.
The six people died in Hubei province after eating a meal of stuffed dumplings Sunday, Xinhua News Agency reported.
In eastern Anhui province, 74 people were hospitalized after eating at a birthday banquet in the provincial capital Hefei, also Sunday.
The patients suffered vomiting, twitching and diarrhea but are not in danger of losing their lives, Xinhua said. It did not say what they ate.
Because of lax health standards and poor preparation methods, mass poisonings are common in China.
