About 30 Vietnamese kids fed disinfectant with milk

HANOI, Vietnam Dr. Huynh Thi Nguyet Phuong of the General Hospital in Thuan An town in southern Binh Duong province says the 3-year-old children suffered Chloramine-B poisoning Friday. Three were seriously ill with vomiting and convulsions, but all were released by Monday.

Monday's online VietnamNet newspaper quoted teachers as saying they accidentally gave the children disinfectant powder dissolved in water with milk instead of cereal powder.

Chloramine-B is used as a cleanser and to prevent waterborne diseases.
