Effect of sodium nitrite on toxin production by Clostridium botulinum in bacon.
Botulism is a rare and potentially lethal, albeit preventable and curable, illness caused by the exotoxin of Clostridium botulinum. (1) Outbreaks of poisoning are most often caused by ingested bacteria contained in home-preserved products rather than by commercially canned products.
Clostridium botulinum has been also associated with the "Equine grass sickness" (EGS), a nervous disease of unknown etiology that is characterized by a severe neuronal degeneration and widespread neuronal loss in both the enteric and autonomic nervous systems (dysautonomia) (HUNTER et al., 1999; WYLIE & PROUDMAN, 2009).
Many decades after Kerner's work, in 1895, an identical poisoning outbreak after a funeral dinner with smoked ham, in the small Belgian village of Ellezelles, led to the discovery of the pathogen we now know as Clostridium botulinum, by Emile Pierre van Ermengem, Professor of bacteriology at the University of Ghent.
A quadruplex real-time PCR assay for rapid detection and differnetiation of the Clostridium botulinum toxin genes A, B, E and F.
Botox is a trade name for a protein called botulinum toxin, produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. In large doses, the protein can cause botulism but Botox is best-known for the string of celebrities who turn to it.
Authorities have also been instructed not to allow any of the products containing Clostridium botulinum, bacteria which can cause botulism.
Summary: The Ministry of Environment and Water said no consignments of contaminated dairy products with the bacterium strain known "Clostridium Botulinum", which causes food poisonings, have entered the UAE from New Zealand.
Original tests raised fears the whey protein concentrate, used in infant formula and sports drinks, might contain clostridium botulinum, which can cause potentially lethal botulism.
However, New Zealand's Ministry of Primary Industries said a barrage of tests ordered after it sounded the alarm had confirmed the contaminant was not the potentially fatal clostridium botulinum, but a milder bug called clostridium sporogenes.
However, the country's Ministry for Primary Industries has received results that confirm the bacteria found in Fonterra's WPC was not Clostridium botulinum, which causes botulism.
