Botulinum in bee pollen?

by Rose
(Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada)

I know that it's not recommended to give babies honey before they're a year old because of the potential for spores of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum to be in it. Does this also apply to bee pollen?

Angela's Response:

According to our Master Bee Keeper, he doesn't recommend giving raw bee pollen to a child under 1 year old.
