26 sick at Mexican daycare

State officials confirmed that at least 26 children were stricken with food poisoning Tuesday while staying at the Child Development Center (Cendi) in the city of Villa de Álvarez.

Health Secretary Agustín Lara Esqueda said, “Laboratory samples of children were taken to determine the causes of poisoning, although it is assumed that all ingested an panela cheese, which could be the source of infection.”
