Gas station nachos cause botulism in 5 people

Sacramento County officials say the five patients who've been diagnosed all reported eating nacho sauce from the Valley Oak Food and Fuel gas station near Sacramento.

Nine people have been hospitalized after eating nacho cheese from a Sacramento gas station, California officials said.

Investigations are ongoing as to what caused the illness, but officials are now putting it down to a batch of nacho cheese.

According to her attorney, Bruce Clark of the Seattle-based Marler Clark law firm, Kelly felt ill the same day she consumed the food and went to Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento.
