POPULAR buffet restaurant Yakimix located inside the Ayala Marquee Mall in Angeles City, Pampanga may have to close down after the city government ordered its temporary closure when some 25 people were hospitalized after allegedly dining at the Japanese restaurant.

According to a report from Sun Star, the Notice of Temporary Closure dated August 7 was signed by City Administrator Dennis Pamintuan pending the result of the test on food, water supply, additives, ingredients collected from the restaurant.

The City Health Office and the Department of Health (DOH) Central Luzon Office are conducting separate investigations and examinations to determine the cause of the alleged food poisoning.

Pamintuan said that the closure order was issued following numerous complaints and confirmed incidents of gastroenteritis and amoebiasis on people who claimed dining in the said restaurant.

The victims of the incident were reportedly admitted in various hospitals including Angeles University Foundation Medical Center, The Medical City Clark, Sacred Heart Hospital, Saint Rafael Medical Center, Ospital ng Angeles, Angeles Medical Center and VL Makabali Memorial Hospital in the City of San Fernando.

The City Government gave Yakimix two working days to explain why its business should not be closed permanently.
