Udupi: More cases were reported relating to people getting sick after consuming ice candies which appeared to have been contaminated with many people getting admitted into hospitals on Tuesday, March 26.

Meanwhile, the owner of the ice candy manufacturing unit at Malpe Kalmadi and three employees of the firm have been booked by the police.

During the weekend on Saturday and Sunday, people carrying ice candies in motor bikes had sold them in various villages in the region. Soon, many elders and children developed symptoms of fever, vomiting and dysentery and over a 100 people got admitted into different hospitals complaining of these symptoms. While some of the people were admitted into the hospital, few others were treated as out-patients.

In order to spread awareness against the consumption of the contaminated ice candies, Hebri panchayat has arranged to announce through microphones mounted on auto rickshaws, to not to consume substandard ice candies being sold from door to door. People who got admitted on Monday are recovering.

The owner of the ice candy manufacturing unit and the three employees were taken in for interrogation and then let go. So far there has been no danger to life on account of ice candy consumption, confirmed the Health Department.
