The canning Industry mows this, and Is careful to see that proper methods are employed. "Housewives who prepare foods at lorno have been educated through cooking schools and through Intelll- ent reading about botulism." The fact that the greatest number of deaths from botulism Is reported In 'allfornla, Washington, Colorado, New York and Oregon does not mean hat. housewives in those states are nore careless than In others, said Doctor Meyer. It only means that authorities In those states Intelligently Investigate and segregate botulism deaths from other deaths, he said.
