What is Botulism?

Eating non-sterile canned seafood could cause botulism, a rare but serious type of food poisoning. Botulism is a potentially deadly illness caused by a paralytic nerve toxin excreted by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum.

Warning Signs & Symptoms

Symptoms of botulism include general weakness, dizziness, double-vision, trouble speaking or swallowing, problems breathing, muscle weakness, abdominal distention, and constipation. All cases of botulism are considered medical emergencies.
