Clostridium Botulinum is a diverse group of pathogenic bacteria grouped by their ability to produce botulinum toxin. The organism itself is known for producing “botulinum” which is the most potent toxin known to mankind is responsible for food-borne botulism via the ingestion of the preformed toxin, infant botulism via intestinal infection by C. Botulinum, and wound botulism via infection of a wound with C. Botulinum. The botulinum toxin, although commonly associated with bulging canned foods (this bulging may occur as the result of an internal increase in pressure caused by the gas produced by the bacteria) can also be produced C. botulinum endospores that are commonly found in soil and are capable of surviving extreme conditions.
