During the Co Ong Bon Festival in Lai Thieu, Binh Duong, many people experienced symptoms of food poisoning after eating free bread and dumplings provided by a charity group. The festival, which took place on April 3 in Lai Thieu ward, Thuan An city, saw attendees falling ill with stomachaches, vomiting, dizziness, and fatigue after consuming the food. The Thuan An City Medical Center reported that 47 individuals, mostly young people from the lion and dragon groups serving at the festival, were hospitalized as a result.

Currently, 5 people have been discharged from the hospital with mild symptoms, while 42 individuals are being monitored after stabilizing. Authorities are investigating the cause of the incident by testing food samples. The quantity of bread and dumplings distributed by the charity group at the festival remains unknown.

The Ong Bon Pagoda Festival is a Chinese cultural event in Binh Duong that commemorates the ancestors of pottery and is held annually on February 25 according to the lunar calendar. As part of Chinese religious customs, Ong Bon is rotated between temples and is invited to a different temple each year. The festival program includes sacrificial rituals, a procession of divine palanquins, Ho Quang singing, lion and dragon dances, and other traditional performances.

In addition to the festival information, the content includes mentions of various products and manufacturers like titanium tube curve suppliers, ASTM A182 F316 stainless steel flanges, Hastelloy pipe curve suppliers, and ASME B16.11 45-degree threaded elbow manufacturers, among others. These products and manufacturers may not directly relate to the festival content and could be seen as unrelated or out of place in this context.
