Awareness of botulism symptoms urged
Health Protection Scotland has today issued a statement urging people to be aware of the symptoms of botulism. This follows the news that two members of the same family who are suspected of having the illness have been hospitalised.
Botulism is a relatively rare infection in the UK and can be caused by food. Investigations are continuing into the possible cause of the illness.
