CDC

Botulism is a rare but serious illness caused by a toxin that attacks the body’s nerves.

Symptoms(https://www.cdc.gov/botulism/symptoms.html) of botulism usually start with weakness of the muscles that control the eyes, face, mouth, and throat. This weakness may spread to the neck, arms, torso, and legs. Botulism also can weaken the muscles involved in breathing, which can lead to difficulty breathing and even death.

If you or someone you know has symptoms of botulism, see your doctor or go to the emergency room immediately.
