5 people hospitalized after eating gas station nacho cheese

Lavinia Kelly: California Woman Hospitalized For Weeks After Putting Gas Station Nacho Cheese On Her Doritos

Currently, Lavinia Kelly is unable to open her eyes or breathe on her own, and her family has posted this GoFundMe page to assist with her ongoing medical care and to support her family while she's out of work.

A few hours after eating the nacho cheese covered Doritos, Lavinia began to show signs of illness. A local report states that Kelly felt worn out within hours of consuming the nacho cheese, but it was only the day after that she went to Sutter Medical Center, complaining of double vision and was sent home just a few hours after.

Kelly is one of nine people who ate the nacho cheese sauce and came down with botulism poisoning or are suspected of having been poisoned by the botulism toxin.

According to a news release by Sacramento County Health and Human Services, an investigation is now underway as several other people have been admitted to hospitals with food-borne botulism.

Lavinia Kelly remains on a ventilator in intensive care in Sacramento after being sickened at an area gas station.

"Somebody needs to be accountable", said Dawn Kelly, the sisters' mom. "We just don't understand why this happened over a bag of chips and nacho cheese", partner Ricky Torres tells the Bee. The botulism attacked nerve endings in Kelly's body and resulted in her partial paralysis and other symptoms. Once the bacteria enter the system, it causes the release of a highly unsafe nerve toxin that lead to severe paralysis, and in some instances, even death.

Officials halted food sales at the business on May 5, according to a press release. Hours later she was throwing up and had a hard time breathing, so she went back to the emergency room. At first, she started experiencing double vision.

Bruce Clark, the family's lawyer, would not say how much money they are suing for, but he says similar cases in the past involved millions of dollars. Per Fox 40 they've retained a Seattle law firm that specializes in food safety issues.

"Only human mistakes create the environment for botulinum toxin to form", Clark said.

Nacho cheese sauce is believed to be the cause of five people being diagnosed with botulism according to a report from The Sacramento Bee.

In 2014, only 161 cases of botulism were confirmed and just 15 of those were food-borne illness.

A craving for nacho cheese has landed a California woman an extended stay in hospital.
