The administration warned that residents should not eat wild mushrooms, including the common white colour ones, and should absolutely throw purchased mushrooms away if they have doubts about them. Fresh mushrooms should be eaten right after being harvested as they can produce toxins if left to rot or crushed.

On June 6, nine people were taken to the Thuan Chau District Medical Station eating a lunch made with a strange kind of mushroom.

After lunch, all of nine people reported having headache and bellyache, followed by vomiting and diarrhea. They were taken to the Thuan Chau District Medical Station. However, the station did not have enough equipment, so seven of them, including a one-month-old girl, were moved to the Son La Province General Hospital.

All of the patients are in stable condition and have been discharged from the hospital. — VNS
