A resident died after eating rice noodles (Kwetiau) at a shop in Taiwan. This incident started when dozens of people fell ill after eating at the shop. A media report reported that many customers at Polam Kopitiam fell ill after eating there. It is known that Polam Kopitiam is a restaurant that serves dishes from Malaysia and is quite popular in Taiwan. This restaurant is famous for its delicious vegetarian menus, unfortunately the shocking news came from this outlet. The Deputy Minister of Health and Welfare confirmed that mass food poisoning occurred at Polam Kopitiam, Xinyi, Taiwan. It was also recorded that at least 35 people became ill after eating there in the period 18 - 24 March.[1]

A total of 4 people were even rushed to the ICU to get more serious help. The latest news is that patients who are in the ICU can no longer have their lives saved. Based on preliminary investigation data, it is suspected that there is 'bongkrek' acid contamination in the food at this restaurant. 'Bongkrek' acid is a poison that can attack the respiratory tract.[2]

'Bongkrek' acid is not only produced by chemical solutions, but can also be formed from fermentation of coconut or corn. One of the recorded fatalities was a 40 year old woman. This customer is said to have fallen ill after eating kwetiau and when he returned home he experienced symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and severe diarrhea. He was treated in the ICU for a month but his condition continued to decline day by day.[3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us for business inquiry, feel free in 24 hour, we will be glad to assist you.
