At least 31 people in China died due to food poisoning and around 1,900 were affected in the last quarter of 2011, the health ministry said.


A total of 46 food poisoning cases were reported during the period October-December, registering nearly a 44% increase from the same period in 2010, Xinhua reported.

Among the cases, nine occurred in school canteens, which caused at least 688 people to fall ill, the ministry said.
