    Give yourself several hours to several days for the symptoms.

    If you even feel the SLIGHTEST bit ill, take the entire family to the doctor and get tested ASAP. Considering the majority of the cans where in Indiana, you probably are safe... But never hurts to take protective issues to be on the safe side. (Remember, they put out millions a can a day, and only 6 or so people have been sickened).

        Health Valley makes great canned chile. No meat.

          Another update... If you see the product on store shelves, don't trust it (check the date codes). Seems alot of places have done nothing to remove the items from their shelves.

            Our local Walmart has, the shelves look so bare.

            When the wife took back the 8 labels of the cans we had back, they tried to scan them for a refund. the teenage working the register said "Huh, it says here I can't sell you this stuff" she said, "but I am returning them for the refund" Teen "Well, I can't sell the stuff so you can't have a refund!"

            She just shook her head and asked if there was a CSM on duty.

            She said the kid reminded her of "Buckley" on the cartoon King of the Hill.

                Botulism which is anerobic and creates its poison with no air present. This is one of the most deadly poisons known. A teaspoon of it equally divided could probably wipe out Knoxville.

                About 40 years ago Knoxville experienced this dreaded toxin. A group of people had a party and served a type of fish from Alaska that contained this toxin. 75 people were affected. Fortunately our ANG commander was present and he recogined this situation as he was a MD. The only available antitoxin was available in Bethesda, MD. He requested a helicoper to dispatch him to the McGhee Tyson AFB which at that time, had F104's which was the fastest jet the AF had at that time. It could fly in excess of 2000 MPH. I believe he flew to a AF base in the Bethesda area in something like 20 minutes. They had the antitoxin available for him at the plane. He refueled and was back in Knoxville in something like less than one hour. He exhausted the fuel in one trip up and one trip back. He was smoking.

                As I recall, three folks still died buy he saved the life of about 75 others.

                Botulism is very very deadly.

                  "It could fly in excess of 2000 MPH"

                  Actually, the F-104 topped out at approximately 1,400 mph, and was capable of sustained flight at a speed of approximately 1,200 mph. But, regardless of its top speed, I am glad that it was able to be utilized for that life-saving mission years ago.

                  If they had to rely on conventional aircraft, most of those victims would have died. Kelly Johnson designed most of the great planes of the mid-late 20th Century, and the F-104 was one of the greatest.

                    Not to mention one of the most beautiful fighters ever made.
