And she was embracing life, said her mother, Dawn Kelly.

County health officials have now linked five cases of botulism to the nacho cheese sauce at the gas station and all five victims are in serious condition at area hospitals. Kelly turned 33 on Tuesday, while still in the hospital.

The next day, Kelly had double vision and an unsteady gait, according to court records.

Lavinia Kelly was driving home from work on April 21 when she stopped at Valley Oak Food and Fuel gas station for a snack. In fact, health officials from Sacramento County claim that five other people have been diagnosed with botulism and they can be tied to Valley Oak Food and Fuel. All nine patients remain hospitalized. Lavinia grabbed a bag of Doritos and decided to make them cheesier by pouring some of the gas station's nacho cheese over them.

Nacho cheese sauce is believed to be the cause of five people being diagnosed with botulism according to a report from The Sacramento Bee.

"We just don't understand why this happened over a bag of chips and nacho cheese", Torres said.

Kelly's family has launched a lawsuit against the gas station.

Lavinia is now in her third week in intensive care.

'(The gas station) should have been more aware. I know they probably didn't make the cheese per se, but they handle that stuff in the store, ' Torres said. "And she's saying, basically she's saying 'Sister, I need you here now.'" Theresa Kelly told KTXL.

Symptoms of botulism, which is caused by a nerve toxin that is released by the bacteria, include double vision, slurred speech, drooping eyelids, and muscle weakness. Bruce Clark, the attorney working on Lavinia's lawsuit, commented on the case.

Clark stated that "human mistakes" are behind the creation of a ideal environment for the formation of "botulinum toxin".

In the case of the gas station nacho cheese, the main source of the contamination is still unclear.

The county revoked the gas station's permit to sell food and drink on May 5 and is urging anyone who ate the gas station's prepared foods from April 23 to May 5 to contact their doctor immediately. "That's an essential question". Clark did say, "They're acquiring astounding medical bills".

Per Consumerist, according to the Centers for Disease Control's most recent National Botulism Surveillance Summary, there were 199 confirmed cases of botulism in the USA in 2015, only 39 of which were food-borne.
