Botulism Booms!

Last week we learned some canned meats are contaminated with botulism. And now, it seems the botulism outbreak has broadened. ParentDish is on it:
A few days ago, the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning for consumers regarding 10 ounce cans of Castleberry's Hot Dog Chili Sauce, Austex Hot Dog Chili Sauce, and Kroger Hot Dog Chili Sauce with "best by" dates from April 30, 2009 through May 22, 2009 due to possible botulism contamination.

Today, that warning was expanded to include even more canned food products and dog food produced by Castleberry's Food Company of Augusta, Ga. "This is a very big recall," said David Elder of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's office of regulatory affairs, deeming it an "urgent public health matter."
The heck with it! Just avoid canned food altogether. Geez!
