Let them eat cake

In the Mexican state of Veracruz more than 1,300 people have been taken ill with food poisoning after they ate cake that was in “poor condition” to celebrate Children’s Day.

Elsewhere in Mexico 200 people in the state of Guerrero became sick after eating pozole, a traditional stew, made from hominy with meat, seasoned and garnished with shredded lettuce, chilli peppers, onion, garlic, radishes, avocado, salsa or limes.
