Opened can smelt really, really, foul.

I opened a can of cream of chicken a few moments ago and it had the most rancid, rotten smell I've ever dealt with from canned food. Of course I threw it away, but I'm concerned it could spread botulism in the air or something.

Is that a concern or is it nothing to worry about?
