I have read that whole raw garlic cloves stored in oil need to be packed 
very carefully to avoid the growth of botulism, though this is rare. I 
think this has to do with the elimination of air pockets.

A great resource for info on food processing and/or preserving is There is an enormous and very thorough FAQ for this 
newsgroup posted regularly to the ng and to the MIT faq repositoory.
