Eilat hospital releases most food poisoning cases

Six youngsters aged 11 to 16 were still at Eilat's Josephthal Hospital on Tuesday afternoon after 115 were admitted on Monday night suffering from food poisoning. The hospital spokeswoman said all are in good condition and some would be discharged before Tuesday night. The Health Ministry took samples of food the youngsters - all of them participants in the city's dance festival - ate. Although there were reports that they took sick from Hanukka doughnuts, the hospital said they had eaten in several places so the cause was not known.
