Cronobacter is a pathogen that usually causes illness in infants and people with compromised immune systems. Symptoms of cronobacter infection usually begin six hours to six days after infection, and can include blood in bowel movements, nausea, vomiting, and irritability and crying in infants.

Clostridium botulinum is a pathogen that produces the botulinum toxin. A small amount of this toxin can be deadly. Normal cooking temperatures will kill the bacteria but not the spores it develops. The toxin is destroyed at temperatures of 176°F and higher.

Symptoms of botulism poisoning include blurred or double vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and muscle weakness. Paralysis progresses downward through the body in a symmetrical manner, and eventually the muscles controlling the lungs are affected. There is an antidote to the toxin, but it must be given intravenously in a hospital setting.
