Family of nine in China dies after eating toxic noodles

Chinese noodles with braised pork chop

The noodles, made from fermented corn flour, are a common dish in the region.

Three members of the family - all children - survived after they refused to eat the meal because they didn't like the taste.

The household living in the northeast province of Heilongjiang consumed the homemade corn noodles for breakfast on October 5, according to the Independent, pointing out a state-run media report. Out of the nine people, who were taken to the hospital, seven died on October 10 after all treatment failed and two days later, the eighth victim was declared dead.

In a shocking incident, nine members of the same family in China died after they consumed homemade corn noodles that were kept in the freezer for a year, according to reports.

It was also discovered in the gastric fluid of the adults, the Health Commission of Heilongjiang Province said.

Gao Fei, director of meals security on the Heilongjiang Centre for Illness Management and Prevention, stated poisoning from the poisonous substance can typically be deadly.


"It could possibly trigger critical harm to many human organs together with the liver, kidneys, coronary heart, and mind", Gao stated.

"Currently, there is no specific antidote".

Symptoms of pungkrek poisoning usually begin within a few hours of eating the contaminated food, and include stomach pain, sweating, weakness of races, and terminal coma.

Chinese officials said in a statement that the nine people had died of food poisoning after finding "a high concentration of bongkrekic acid" in the noodle soup. Death can then occur within a timeframe as short as 24 hours. "As soon as poisoned, the fatality fee could be as excessive as 40 to 100 p.c".

It is extremely toxic, resistant to high temperatures, and can not be removed even if thoroughly cooked, Fan Zhihong, an associate professor of China's Agricultural University, told the Beijing News.

Bongkrek acid contamination in locally-produced beer was also blamed for 75 deaths and over 200 hospitalisations after a funeral in Mozambique.
