Clostridium perfringens food poisoning usually occurs after animal protein foods such as meat or poultry are consumed.
In November 1990, an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness occurred among attendees at a conference of cake decorators held in Michigan.
All 42 conference attendees were surveyed.
Thirty-two of 42 (76%) attendees reported gastrointestinal symptoms.
The median incubation period was 6.5 hours (range, 1.5-15 hours). 111 persons were almost five times more likely to have consumed minestrone soup than were those who were not ill (relative risk=4.92, 95% confidence interval 1.23-).
