Food Borne Botulism: A Rare And Life-Threatening Form Of Food Poisoning
Each year in the United States, there are somewhere between 10 and 30 outbreaks of botulism reported. Most of these are associated with improperly processed or prepared food, such as meat, vegetables and seafood.
Botulism attacks the nervous system, resulting in death in severe cases as a result of respiratory failure. Botulism symptoms include vision and speech problems, difficulty swallowing and muscle fatigue.
