i kind of remember an outbreak of botulism being traced to dented cans of mushrooms. This was 20-30 years ago.

In 1982 I was an area supervisor for Pizza Hut in Phoenix, AZ and one of the cans of mushrooms was dented in one of the Huts in NW Phoenix and it was confirmed botulism and we pulled all mushroom's from every store in AZ. We found 9 cans all dented in 3 stores and 2 had botulism when tested.
