Your Garden Variety Botulism

Palm Beach Gardens, Florida is on botulism alert. A company by the name of "Gourmet de Lyon" has produced a long list of "preserved" foods, vacuum-packed in jars, and has offered them for sale in two markets in the Palm Beach Gardens area. The company was operating out of a restaurant kitchen and without the proper permits.

The list of foods includes a whole range of risky products - meats and vegetables - that are prone to botulism if not processed correctly. If you or anyone you know is a resident of the area and has purchased these products, please discard the products or return them to the store.

This type of behavior, in my opinion, falls under the category of "criminal negligence". Botulism is nothing to fool with.
