I really am scared of botulism. Not in an irrational way – I get the risk calculation stuff.
Prevalence is low but consequence is way high. Like months of health problems. Which might lead to death before recovery.
Tragically, the 2015 Lancaster Ohio botulism outbreak claimed a second life (initial reports cited one, Kim Shaw) according to My Fox 28.
A second woman passed away from the botulism contamination that poisoned 21 other people at a church pot luck last year.
The family of Marcella Barbee, 65, said she died in November 2015.
Barbee was a member of Cross Pointe Church and had contracted botulism following the church potluck and suffered from a number of health issues as a result.
