The factory is an affiliate of the Hanoi-based Ho Guom Garment Joint Stock Company.
They were taken to Cam Tu Commune Health Center and the Cam Tu District General Hospital after they developed food poisoning symptoms including stomachache, vomiting, dizziness, and rashes on their bodies.
The workers said their lunch included cooked rice, braised fish, and boiled water spinach.
The local health agency took samples of the food and the water that had been used in cooking for testing.
After treatment, most of the workers were discharged later the same day, said Pham Viet Hoai, deputy chairman of the district People’s Committee.
Earlier, a similar case occurred in the province on March 12, affecting about 230 workers at Hong Fu Shoe Company in the Hoang Long Industrial Park.

They were hospitalized with symptoms of convulsive fits, vomiting and stomachaches after having their lunch.
Some workers said they had complained to the management about the stale and smelly soup that was served to them.
However, the management ignored their complaint and 20 minutes later, they experienced poisoning symptoms.
