The state health department is still trying to figure out how the store's cheese became contaminated with a very rare and incredibly deadly pathogen.
Reports state that Lavinia Kelly has been in the hospital for at least three weeks and is now unable to speak because of the infection. The illness can be treated with an antitoxin and supportive care, usually in an intensive care unit.

An Antioch father of two has died from a severe case of botulism and may be a victim of an outbreak traced to a Walnut Grove service station, family members said.

Seeking care promptly may also alert public health authorities and lead to warnings about eating contaminated food. "It is probably not a good idea to get nacho cheese from the gas station either".
