Causes

Food-borne botulism occurs when food contaminated with the toxin from the bacteria is ingested. It is caused by the consumption of improperly canned or stored food that is contaminated with spores. Infant botulism occurs when an infant ingests spores in honey or other foods that produce the toxin in the infant's GI tract. Wound botulism occurs from toxin produced in a wound contaminated with Clostridium botulinum. Indeterminate botulism occurs in individuals over the age of 1 who have no recognizable source of the disease.
