Now a food crisis in Japan

A lot of people are getting very sick.. The LA TIMES reports:
In what appears to be a country-wide outbreak of food poisoning, 350 people in Japan have been sickened by the pesticide malathion after eating frozen chicken teriyaki with mayonnaise, cream corn croquettes or pizza, according to a police investigation.

The outbreak is being traced to Maruha Nichiro Holdings, Japan’s largest seafood firm that runs a plant north of Tokyo. The company said it had received 460,000 calls from concerned consumers. Symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea. Some customers complained of an odor as the foods were heating up.
