The study provides data on two cases of foodborne botulism caused by consumption of commercial vegetable products: artichoke preserve and cream of vegetable soup. By mouse bioassay, Clostridium botulinum toxin in both the suspected food samples was detected and identified as type B toxin. The detection of C. botulinum toxin in the artichoke preserve indicates an inadequate food production technology while the presence of C. botulinum toxin in the vegetable soup appeared to be related to wrong behavior on the part of the consumer and to faulty food preservation. The study confirms that an early identification and reporting of suspected botulism cases is vital in the prevention of accidental widespread outbreaks.

The "Istituti Zooprofilattici" are an important network whose main function is the monitoring of animal health as well as food. As a result of the recent improvements in aquaculture technology interest in the safety of seafood is increasing. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to set up diagnostic methods for the detection of virus contamination, as well as the use of in vitro techniques able to identify the different toxins. The results have allowed the development of molecular biology assays which, together with the isolation in cell cultures, can detect contaminations/infections by the hepatitis A virus and the most common enteroviruses. Moreover, specific selected cell lines have led to the detection of different toxins. These laboratory methods will be used in order to control seafood safety.
