Raw poultry, unpasteurized (raw) milk and untreated water.(Note: dogs, cats and farm animals can also carry this bacteria.)
Fever, headache and muscle pain, followed by diarrhea (often bloody), stomach pain, cramps, nausea and vomiting.
Keep raw meat and poultry separate from ready-to-eat foods. Cook foods to a safe internal temperature. Drink only pasteurized milk and use a safe water supply.
Improperly prepared home-canned, low-acid foods (e.g. corn, mushrooms, spaghetti sauce, salmon, garlic in oil). Honey may also be contaminated with C. botulinum.
Nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, headache, double vision, and dryness in the throat and nose. In some cases, these may lead to respiratory failure, paralysis and even death.
Never eat food from cans that are dented, leaking or bulging. Be sure to follow proper canning processes when canning foods at home. Refrigerate all foods that are labelled “keep refrigerated”. Do not feed honey to children under one year.
Raw or undercooked meats (especially ground meats), raw vegetables and fruit. Untreated water and unpasteurized (raw) milk and unpasteurized apple juice or cider.
Stomach cramps, diarrhea (sometimes bloody) and fever. Some may develop Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, an unusual type of kidney failure and blood disorder, which can result in death.
Keep your hands, food preparation surfaces and utensils clean. Avoid cross-contamination. Rinse raw vegetables and fruit well. Store and cook foods properly.
