Woman paralyzed, four others hospitalized after eating gas station nacho cheese

Lavinia Kelly: California Woman Hospitalized For Weeks After Putting Gas Station Nacho Cheese On Her Doritos

At least five people have contracted botulism after eating nacho cheese sauce from a Sacramento area gas station.

Five people have been hospitalised after eating nacho cheese from a petrol station in Sacramento, California. An investigation is now ongoing to establish the cause nonetheless. Authorities have confirmed five other cases of botulism linked to the gas station and continue to investigate four other cases.

A Sacramento mother of three is spending her 33rd birthday in the hospital Wednesday after a rare form of food poisoning has left her partially paralyzed and breathing on a ventilator.

Kelly's family issued a civil lawsuit on Tuesday against Valley Oak Food and Fuel, claiming strict product liability and violation of implied warranty, Sacramento County Superior Court records reads.

That's how Kelly first came to realize the seriousness of the illness that's changed her vibrant little sister, Lavinia, into a patient who's fighting to breathe or even open her eyes. Kelly's partner, Ricky Torres, tells the Daily Mail that Kelly was driving home from work on April 21 when she stopped at the station and made a decision to pour the cheese sauce over a bag of Doritos.

Kelly was heading home after work on April 21, then, she stopped at the gas station for nachos.

Lavinia Kelly's sister, Theresa, according to WABC-TV, said that she got an emergency phone call from her sister after she ate the nacho cheese sauce from the gas station.

State health officials have reportedly stripped the gas station of its permit to sell food and drinks. "We just don't understand why this happened over a bag of chips and nacho cheese", partner Ricky Torres tells the Bee. Kelly's family has filed a negligence lawsuit on her behalf.

"Thank God that we know she can recover". Most often, food-borne botulism is connected to home canning, when the canning process is done improperly.

Symptoms of botulism, which is caused by a nerve toxin that is released by the bacteria, include double vision, slurred speech, drooping eyelids, and muscle weakness. They're handling that stuff every day.

"The source of the food product may be unrelated to the gas station", he added.

A Go-Fund-Me page has been created to help with Kelly's medical bills and to support her three kids. Employees have no responded to requests for comment. That's an essential question'.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, botulism is caused by a toxin produced by bacteria.
