New Botulism Case Under Investigation

Last updated on Wednesday, August 1, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS) - State health officials are investigating another suspected case of botulism that an Indiana resident may have contracted by eating one of the products included in a recent canned meat recall.

The Indiana Department of Health says a person ate one of the products on Sunday and later became ill. Health officials will not know whether the person has botulism until test results come back in a few days.

The government has told people to immediately throw away more than 90 different products produced at a Castleberry's Food Company plant linked to a botulism outbreak. The recall includes canned chili sauce, corned beef hash and dog food, among other items.

So far, four confirmed cases of botulism have been confirmed -- two from Indiana and two from Texas.
