On Friday, Mae Sot Hospital director Somyos Krinthathan led hospital officials to alert the public about the danger of consuming wild mushrooms.
Somyos said a lot of wild mushrooms had grown after the rainy season started.
He said three Myanmar workers collected and ate a type of wild mushroom that looked like eggs in Ban Thongchai village in Tambon Dan Mae Lamao recently and died.
Somyos and hospital officials have handed out pamphlets in Thai and Myanmar languages to advise them of the danger.
Somyos said people needed to be made aware of the danger urgently to prevent more deaths.
