An outbreak of food poisoning at a prison facility in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, caused 249 inmates to become ill, prison officials said.

On the morning of June 26, inmates at Miyagi prison, the adjacent Sendai Detention Center, and the Tohoku Juvenile Detention Center complained of abdominal pains and diarrhea, Fuji TV quoted prison officials as saying. Everyone who exhibited the same symptoms had all eaten the same food.

The cooking facility has been shut down for three days from Thursday to Saturday. Sendai City health officials are questioning the 23 inmates who were in charge of cooking that day.

Last October, 223 inmates at Miyagi prison suffered from food poisoning.

Prison director Rei Abe said he will strictly supervise measures for hygiene control at the facilities.

Hope they have enough toilets in the prison to handle this mass breakout of a different kind!

When the authorities remove the freedom of a person they also except full responsibility for their health and well being. That is the way.

Do hope you meant “accept”, not “except.” ;-)

This is not death row but even on death row the authorities are 100% responsible for the inmates. That includes suicide watches. That is the way.
