    I am going through my microbiology book and came across a "box question". The scenario read as follows.

    I have included the case scenario in the attachment. I think it is botulism caused by the onions... The onions sautéed in the margarine created an environment where the bacteria could proliferate.

    The questions the book asks.

    - Identify the etiologic agent of this food outbreak- was it food infection or intoxication?

    -What item was contaminated, and how did it become contaminated?

    -Briefly explain how you arrived at your conclusion. How did you eliminate the other major causes of food related
