On May 27, 1987 an outbreak of gastroenteritis occurred in a tour group of 130 persons who were members of Chao-Chiao Village Farmer’s Association of Miaoli County (trainees of its culinary art course and their family members) during their trip to visit Woo-Lai of Taipei County. A full investigation was carried out in cooperation with local health authorities after the Bureau of Disease Control learned about the outbreak through mass media reports.
