    There are literally hundreds of bacterial toxins from mouldy fruit or veggies or wild shrooms that could have caused it.
    As each possible poison requires a specific test, saying they should have tested for "poison" is nonsensical that would involve thousands of tests, a huge number of samples, take ages and then possibly still draw a blank. They picked the most likely options based on symptoms and went with those.

    Yes, looking at the other way, they did not know enough to justify NOT administering botulinum antitoxin.

    From the symptoms it seems to be a neurotoxin, there are many out there.

    Didn't read all 14 pages, is it possible to get secondary poisoning from tutu plant/berries?

    Yup, best known example is tutu, people have been poisoned by eating honey containing tutu nectar. It has no effect on the bees and now beekeepers must test honey for tutu if harvested in areas where it grows.

    yes but they should test for 1080 and broada as well as botulism and salmonella straight away as these would be more common than most as source of poisoning. if they did as someone said that they took all the meat from the freezer and destroyed it without testing smacks of a cover up or a way of getting rid of anything that could point the blame at something that officials don't want discovered.

    Rumour has it that the old girl bought some dodgy shit back from India (or somewhere) recently. And MPI are running for cover to save their arses for letting it through the border.

    It could be anything then. They should just com out and say "we do our best to stop this happening but this is why it's a bad idea to bring back food from overseas"
