Botulism is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning - symptoms can include decreased frequency of stools, a weak cry, lethargy, weak suck or poor feeding. The illness usually starts within 18 to 36 hours of injesting the tainted food. The baby may show difficulty in swallowing, and drooling, followed by shallow breathing and respiratory arrest.

Seniors consuming the products can exhibit symptoms such as blurred vision, dizziness, dry mouth, and progressive weakness from head to legs. Constipation and urinary retention are also common.
