Gwale, Kano Municipal, Dala, Bunkure, Fagge, Gwarzo, Dawakin Tofa, Ungogo, Kumbotso, Tarauni, Rano, Dawakinjudu and Danbatta are among the affected councils.
Tsanyawa said the products batch had expired since about a year ago but were still being sold in the market. Out of the 284 hospitalised, 101 have been discharged leaving 183 still receiving treatment, the state government said.
The commissioner also announced that the seized items that caused the outbreak of the disease are valued at N59 million.

“The state government is providing free treatment to the infected persons.
“13 persons have been arrested in connection with the circulation of the suspected products.
“The index is a six-year old girl who developed abdominal pain, was vomiting and had jaundice and urine with blood (hematuria) after drinking water bought from a vendor.
“The vendor was said to have sourced the water from a borehole at a cemetery in the metropolis.
“The assumption involves instant drink flavour powder and a variety of salt for industrial use (caustic powder).
“Water, blood and different instant drink flavour powder samples have been taken for tests to pin down a diagnosis, ranging from food-borne disease, food poisoning, Lassa Fever, Yellow Fever, Dengue Fever, Chemical poisoning to Toxix Hepatitis.”
When it comes to trolling in the Hip Hop world, no one does it better than Hip Hop legend and business mogul 50 Cent as he is on the ‘neck’ of Floyd Mayweather again with his trolls.
50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson and Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has been in a very long ‘unsettled’ beef for a very long time now with both successful business men throwing shades at each other with the least opportunity.
But 50 Cent is way above Mayweather in trolls as he mostly makes the Boxing champ always feels uncomfortable on social media. Recall he started trolling Mayweather with his hair when the former welterweight Boxing champion made a public appearance with a heavy mustache could of months ago.
50 Cent in a post on social media posted the photo of his former best friend Mayweather with the heavy mustache trolling him that he took some hair from his ‘a$$’ and implanted it around his mouth.
The television guru couple of months ago wanted to settle the long beef with his former best friend in a boxing match after he threw a challenge to Mayweather of which Mayweather accepted the challenge for the boxing match.
But 50 Cent knowing what he was doing later called off the match 48 hours after Mayweather accepted the match saying the head of the ‘The Money Team’ can’t read two paragraphs of his best New Times Selling Book.
Well 50 Cent is back again trolling Mayweather about his hair when camera captured the Boxing champ with fully grown hair on his head during a pre-match brawl with YouTuber Jack Paul last night.

Celebrity disc jockey, Dj Cuppy savagely responds to a follower who subtly attacked her for showing extra care to her puppies.
The billionaire’s daughter had shared photos of her puppies wrapped in cosy towels as she affirms how the transition to motherhood has touched and made her a softer person. “Motherhood is already making me a better person… I might even do giveaway soon,” Cuppy wrote while sharing photos of her puppies.
In reaction, a follower expressed exhaustion of the renowned DJ’s act as he blatantly stated that he is so done with her behaviours.
“I cannot stand Cuppy anymore,” he wrote.
DJ Cuppy, however, did not let it cool before savagely firing back by telling the fan to ‘sit down’ since she cannot stand her anymore.
