Were you looking for information about Botulism? Botalism is a common misspelling of botulism.
Botulism is a rare but severe condition that occurs in about 110 people each year in the United States. There are three types of this illness: foodborne botulism, wound botulism, and infant botulism. All forms can result in death due to respiratory failure and require immediate medical attention. People who survive an episode of botulism poisoning may have fatigue and shortness of breath for years, and long-term treatment may be needed to aid recovery.
