Chilly Sauce Linked to Botulism, Forcing Recall in US

This time a product recall in US without a Chinese link. Following reports of botulism outbreak, hot dog chilly sauce manufactured in a Georgia facility are being withdrawn in USA.

This is the first outbreak of botulism from commercially canned foods in nearly four decades.

Health officials asked consumers and stores to discard 10-ounce cans of some leading brands like Castleberry's, Kroger and Austex .

Two Texas children and an Indiana couple were hospitalized with botulism in late June and earlier this month.

Investigators traced the sickness of the Texas siblings, ages 12 and 13, to a June 28 meal of hot dogs slathered with chili sauce. Investigators believe the husband and wife in Indiana got sick from a July 5 meal that included chili sauce and baked potatoes.

All four of the patients became seriously ill and had to be placed on ventilators, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

Symptoms of botulism can include blurred vision, drooping eyelids, muscle weakness, slurred speech and difficulty swallowing. If not treated quickly with antitoxin, botulism can paralyze breathing muscles, and victims could spend months on ventilators until the toxin wears off.

Botulism is rare. The paralyzing illness can leave victims hospitalized for months and is fatal in about 8 percent of cases. Fewer than 30 cases a year are linked to food, and those illnesses are most often associated with home canning.

The bacteria clostridium botulinum is commonly found in soil and can produce nerve toxins under certain conditions. Botulinum toxin has become so rare in canned foods that Americans may be more familiar with it in a much-diluted form, as the anti-wrinkle treatment Botox, which works by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles.

To guard against toxins forming in food, canned goods are heated during processing to kill bacteria
