Three Central Oregonians are recently hospitalized for botulism after eating home canned beets at a private barbeque.  Two of the patients are out of the hospital, but Deschutes County health officials want to warn people about the dangers of botulism.  If food isn't canned properly, specifically at a temperatures above 240 degrees, botulism spores aren't destroyed and can make people sick.  Eric Mone is with the Deschutes County Health Department.  “Botulism is a muscle paralyzing disease.  It starts in the cranial area and goes right to your toe.  You will become paralyzed and can't breach.  One case of botulism is cause for alarm.”  On average, Oregon sees about two cases of botulism a year.  So for one area to see three cases, is a lot.  Health officials says botulism is not spread person to person, so there is no risk to the general public.
