Clostridium Perfringens

I picked the one with the longest name.

Sources/Causes

Small amounts of C. perfringens can live in your intestine without discomfort. Illness is caused by eating food that is contaminated with large amounts of this bacteria that can produce enough toxin to cause illness. Spores can grow into bacteria between 54°F and 140°F, while the bacteria can multiply between 109°F and 117°F.

This bacteria can be found in such foods as:

Beef

Poultry

Gravy

Dried/Precooked Foods

Symptoms

Symptoms generally include abdominal pain and diarrhea. While it can take anywhere from 6 to 24 hours for these symptoms to appear, it will usually take 8-12, and generally lasts less than 24 hours.
