Ibaraki prefectural health officials said Tuesday that 379 elementary and junior high school students fell ill on Monday after drinking milk provided in their daily school lunches.
According to the officials, around 3,700 students at 61 schools in the prefecture complained of a “disinfectant odor” after consuming the milk supplied in their school lunches, Fuji TV reported.
The prefecture’s board of education said that of the 379 students who complained of not feeling well, two were taken to hospital after vomiting.
Health officials said the milk came from Ibaraku Co in Mito. They are investigating the company's plant to try and determine the cause of the bad milk.© Japan Today
