    KRASNOYARSK, July 29 (RIA Novosti) - A total of 92 children have been hospitalized following an outbreak of food poisoning at a summer camp in Russia's Krasnoyarsk Territory, in East Siberia, Russia's consumers rights watchdog said on Tuesday.

    Eleven children at the Salyut camp are seriously ill with a suspected stomach infection, while 62 others are in a 'moderately grave' condition, a spokesman for Rospotrebnadzor said.

    A criminal case has been opened. An investigation is underway.

    In late June, a total of 70 children at the Solnechny summer camp in Krasnoyarsk were hit by yersiniosis, a bacterial infection usually contracted through the consumption of undercooked meat, milk, water or vegetables.
