A California man has died--and nine other people have been hospitalized--in the wake of an outbreak of botulism, a rare foodborne poisoning caused by the bacterium clostridium botulinum.
The source? Processed nacho cheese sauce at a Sacramento gas station.
Martin Galindo, the man who died, spent weeks in the hospital after consuming the sauce. He was on a ventilator before falling into a coma.
The sauce has since been removed from the gas station, Valley Oak Food and Fuel gas.
However, the California Department of Public Health has urged anyone who has visited a gas station to seek medical immediately if they experience double or blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, dry mouth, or muscle weakness.
