Author information

CSIR - National Environmental Engineering Research Institute, Nehru Marg, Nagpur 440 020, India.


The reason behind the food-poisoning due to felling of house geckos in eatables is described in this paper. House geckos are known to carry various types of pathogens in their bodies which cause food-poisoning after consuming the contaminated foods. Since these geckos are non-poisonous, the food poisoning due to their presence in food is not possible.
