Health Minister, Daisy Corrales, said most of the cases are for objects and insects (especially salads) in the food. Following are complaints for uncleanliness of the establishment and third for intoxications or food poisining.

According to Corrales, all complaints are investigated, and not only focusing on the item of the complaint, but a general inspection of the entire operations is made.

Areas that investigators will look into are: cleanliness of the establishment, availability of drinking water, food handing, cooking, storage and waste disposal, among others. Employees are also required to have a food handling certificate.
