 "Clostridium botulinum is an anaerobic, Gram-positive, spore-forming rod that roduces a potent  neurotoxin. 
 The spores are heat-resistant and can survive in foods that are incorrectly or minimally processed. 
 Seven types (A, B, C, D, E, F and G) of botulism are recognized, based on the antigenic specificity of the toxin produced by each strain. 
 Types A, B, E and F cause human botulism. 
 Types C and D cause most cases of botulism in animals. 
 Animals most commonly affected are wild fowl and poultry, cattle, horses and some species of fish. 
 Although type G has been isolated from soil in Argentina, no outbreaks involving it have been recognized."
