  • Description:
    "The Alaska Division of Public Health, the Arctic Investigations Program of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Alaska Area Native Health Service of the U.S. Indian Health Service first produced this monograph in 1993 to give Alaska healthcare providers an up-to-date summary of botulism in Alaska. In 1998 and now in 2005, Alaska Division of Public Health staff updated the original monograph. Botulism can result from several different circumstances, the most common of which is from consumption of preformed toxin in food. Cases of foodborne botulism in the United States have been associated with consumption of home-canned products, rarely with consumption of commercially available products, and in Alaska, with consumption of Alaska Native traditional foods.
