Consumers Warned of Schumacher’s Botulism Home-Canned Soup Linked to Pennsylvania Restaurant

Consumers who purchased or were given “home-canned” soup or other canned products from the Schumacher’s Inn in Austin, Potter County, should not open the jars due to the risk of botulism contamination, Health Secretary Dr. Calvin B. Johnson said today. Consumers who obtained canned products from the restaurant should immediately contact the Pennsylvania Department of Health, toll-free, at 877-PA-HEALTH. The state became involved after a 43-year-old Potter County woman, and some of the chicken soup she said she purchased from the restaurant, tested positive for botulism.
