Botulism in Germany

Rates of botulism in Germany have changed little since the 1980’s – as depicted in the following graph: [1, 2].

Of historic interest, the world’s first botulism outbreak was reported in this country. In 1793, thirteen residents of Wildbad acquired the disease from tainted sausage – thus the term “botulism” (Latin, botulus = sausage). [1,2]
