Fifty employees of the Pasay City Treasurer’s Office, two janitorial staff, and a reporter fell ill after eating pancit Malabon on Nov. 9

Amor Virata, publisher of a weekly newspaper “People’s Lider”, was among the victims of food poisoning.

City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (CESU) head Mico Llorca said most of the employees affected by the food poisoning are now recovering at home.

One of the janitorial staff, Marvic Bacanay, is still confined at the Pasay City General Hospital and waiting to be cleared.

Llorca said Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano ordered an investigation to determine if the pancit Malabon, which was ordered through food delivery service, was indeed the cause of food poisoning.

Virata said she visited the Treasurer Office upon the invitation of one of the staff who was celebrating his birthday that day.
