    A. Cured meat, cans
    Explanation
    Clostridium botulinum is a type of bacteria that produces a potent neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. This toxin is responsible for causing botulism, a severe and potentially fatal illness. Clostridium botulinum thrives in environments with low oxygen levels, such as canned foods and cured meats. These conditions provide an ideal environment for the bacteria to grow and produce the toxin. Therefore, the correct answer is "cured meat, cans."
