129 persons were reported to have gastroenteritis symptoms after consuming food prepared at Chilli Api Catering Pte Ltd from 10 to 13 March 2021. 23 of them were hospitalised and have since been discharged.
A joint inspection by the Ministry of Health and the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) was conducted at the food caterer on 14 March 2021. Several hygiene lapses were identified during the inspection and SFA will be taking enforcement action against the licensee for these lapses. The operating license of the caterer was also suspended by SFA from 14 March to 30 April 2021.
