Japan Tainted Food Outbreak Causes Food Poisoning

It is a very upsetting event alright. Hundreds of people unwittingly ate packaged frozen seafood from Maruha Nichiro Holdings. The pesticide-laced eatables let loose an epidemic of diarrhea and vomiting among those affected. The company executives have formally offered their deepest apologies at the mishap. 

They are also taking back their faulty products from the supermarket shelves. After getting calls complaining of the foul disease that was haunting diners, the company is contrite over its negligence. The food products include lasagna, pizza and croquettes. It is a miracle and a blessing that this food has not been exported to the rest of the world. 

The police got involved in the whole shebang. To their surprise and utter shock they found malathion, a powerful pesticide, in the frozen goods. And the amount was more than two million times the normal allowable limit. This has all the makings of a scandal. Especially in an honor-based culture like Japan, the mismanagement spells trouble for those responsible for the neglect and carelessness. 

The problem seems to be that this particular pesticide could actually prove fatal at high doses. The public is in a state of panic at the controversial findings. They want a full inquiry into the matter. And while no deaths have occurred so far, the chances are there since many of the products are still in the market and may get consumed by innocent customers.
