Botulism food poisoning can be fatal, and should be treated as a medical emergency. Symptoms may include dry mouth, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, muscle weakness, blurred vision, double vision, and drooping eyelids. If left untreated, muscle paralysis may progress to the arms, legs, trunk, and respiratory muscles, possibly resulting in death. Symptoms usually appear 12 to 36 hours after consuming C. botulinum toxin; however, symptoms can occur as early as six hours, or as late as 10 days, following the consumption of contaminated food.
