About Botulism:
Health Canada says Botulism is a rare but serious paralytic illness caused by a nerve poison that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum (C. botulinum). Foodborne botulism is caused by eating foods that contain the botulism toxin. You can also get Botulism from an infected wound. All forms of botulism can cause paralysis and be fatal. Clostridium botulinum bacteria cannot grow in air, so Foodborne Botulism is usually seen only when certain foods are stored or prepared improperly. These typically include the following:

  • Improperly prepared low-acid, home-canned foods (such as asparagus, beets, green beans, mushrooms, peppers);
  • Improperly smoked fish;
  • Improperly prepared raw marine mammal meat (such as whale, walrus, seal);
  • Non-refrigerated storage of low-acid fruit juices (such as carrot juice); and
  • Baked potatoes improperly stored in aluminum foil.
