About Mycotoxin Poisoning:
HT-2 is a Mycotoxin produced by the Fusarium species of moulds. Mycotoxins are group of over 300 toxic chemical products formed by fungi that can grow on crops in the field or after harvest. The foods that can be affected are generally thought to be cereals, nuts, fruit and dried fruit, coffee, cocoa, spices, oilseeds and milk. Some Mycotoxins target the kidney, liver or the immune system while others are carcinogenic (i.e., known to cause certain types of Cancer).

Ingestion of the HT-2 toxin may cause nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it or serve it to others. If you experience these symptoms and suspect Mycotoxin Poisoning, seek medical care on an emergency basis, taking the suspected contaminated food for further analysis.

You can get more information about Mycotoxin Poisoning from this Health Canada site: http://ht.ly/mtGn9
