Potato Food Poisoning

 

Contaminated potatoes can cause food poisoning. Clostridium botulinum has been linked to baked potatoes as the bacteria can survive the cooking process. Mishandled potatoes can contain high levels of glycoalkaloids that can cause food poisoning symptoms such as diarrhea, and vomiting within 30 mins.
