This is the conclusion, according to the authorities.  Two weeks ago, 800 workers simultaneously succumbed to “mass psychogenic illness”  

Yesterday, a few hundred more factory workers fell ill with “mass psychogenic illness” after drinking water of questionable quality at their workplace in Gazipur at the outskirts of Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka.

The Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research in Bangladesh, which tested samples of the water after the incident at Starlight Sweaters on June 5, said they did not find anything unusual from the regular contaminants in water.

The Institute’s director, Dr. Mahmudur Rahman, found the case to be a result of “mass psychogenic illness.”

I'm sorry, but this gives CYA a whole new level of "you have to be kidding us"

What would it cost to provide these slave-waged garment workers with unlimited cold, clean water?

Do you believe 100s of people became simultaneously sick from “mass psychogenic illness?
