Officials in Thailand say about 200 Burmese workers at two Thai garment factories have been stricken with food poisoning.
A factory supervisor says the workers fell ill shortly after having a meal containing chicken, pumpkin, beans and a meat curry.
The workers are employed at factories in Thailand's Mae Sot district, which borders Burma. The factories, owned by a Hong Kong businessman, employ about 800 migrant Burmese workers.
