Diner Alert: Nine Thai foods you should avoid in summer

.
The Department of Disease Control has issued a list of nine Thai dishes that could potentially cause diarrhea during the summer.
.
According to the Department, the number of diarrhea patients between Jan. 1 to Mar. 10 totaled 191,515. One patient reportedly died from complications resulting from the condition. The Department warned restaurants across Thailand to pay more attention to hygiene in the kitchen and warned diners to wash their hands before each meal.
.
Below is the list of Thai foods that easily go bad in the hot weather, subsequently posing a risk to the health of diners.
.
1. Larb/Koi or spicy Isaan meat salad: This dish is a combination of ground meat seasoned with fish sauce, limejuice, chili and herbs. Both dishes are similar except that Koi uses raw meat.
.
2. Yum Goong Dten or “spicy shrimp salad”: This dish’s Thai name literally means “Dancing Shrimp Salad,” suggesting that live shrimp are main ingredient to the dish.
 .
3. Yum Hoy Krang or “spicy cockle salad”: Diners need to make sure that cockles are given a good rinse before eating them.
 .
4. Fried rice topped with crabmeat
 .
5. All coconut milk recipes: Phanaeng curry, Massaman curry, chicken green curry, coconut custard, Bualoy, Saku Biak, you name it.
 .
6. Kanom Jeen or “fermented Thai rice noodle”: Since Kanom Jeen is made from rice that has been fermented for three days, it can rot quickly.
 .
7. Khao Man Gai or “chicken rice”
8. Som Tam or “spicy green papaya salad”
.
9. Green salad
The Department also warns diners of ice and suggests them not to eat food that has been left out overnight.
