A potentially deadly form of food poisoning is appearing in some soup cans. Botulism has been found in some Tasty Classics brand soups sold in Hy-Vee stores. Dr. Cynthia Holmes, with the Mid-America Poison Control Center says about 30% of people who contract botulism die from it, but that number is inflated by mortality figures in Third World countries. She says botulism is also extremely rare in commercial canned goods. Holmes notes in the rare cases where botulism does appear, it usually happens in home canning.
