Botulism in a can?

Comments Off

Canned meat recall causes quite a scare and illness too!

Botulism is a rare, but serious paralytic illness caused by a nerve toxin, botulin, that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Several days ago, many canned meat products were recalled due to the potential that the products contain botulism.

The canned meat products were produced by Castleberry’s Food Co. and include hot dog chili sauce sold under the Kroger (King Soopers) brand. Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Castleberry’s at (888) 203-8446. For a complete list of the recalled products, visit the News-Register Web site at www.news-register.net; or the Food and Drug Administration: http:www.fda.gov; or Castleberry’s Food Co.: http://www.castleberrys.com/
