Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In May 1992, the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDH) received a report of a man admitted to a hospital with a preliminary diagnosis of botulism. Subsequently, three family members of the man were diagnosed with botulism. This report summarizes the epidemiologic investigation of these cases that linked illness to consumption of an uneviscerated, salt-cured fish product.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
