Family suffers food poison from salt fish


A family at Feraladoa of Kola Ridge have suffered food poisoning from salted fish bought from Honiara’s central market.

Three members of the family are reported to be in critical condition.

A Mr Andrew Dani, relative of the family, explains the mother had bought the contaminated fish for their lunch yesterday.

However, after eating their lunch, three family members; two elders in their 30s and a young person, began experiencing vomiting, intense headache, red eye, nausea and fatigue.

The family is said to be seeking medical attention. They are calling on authorities to address the issue of contaminated salted fish being sold at the market.

“Our concern is we want health authorities and HCC health division to carryout inspection in the boats and market as well because it is also important for people’s health and consumption,” Dani said.
