Foxconn Staff at India Plant Treated for Nausea, Hospital Says

July 25 (Bloomberg) -- About 150 workers at a Foxconn Technology Group factory in the southern Indian city of Chennai were treated for nausea and breathlessness yesterday at nearby Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre.

Most of the workers were discharged while some remain under treatment, T.G. Nallamuthu, a hospital spokesman, said today by telephone. He declined to say what caused the illness.

Edmund Ding, a spokesman for the Foxconn Group, wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Foxconn’s Chennai factory was shut down after workers fell ill from inhaling pesticide fumes, the Hindu Business Line newspaper reported, without saying where it got the information. Thousands of workers sat out in protest, asking for the factory premises to be checked, the daily said.
