In the United States, these bacteria are the most common cause of bacterial foodborne illness, ahead of Salmonella—the second most common cause. Foods that may contain Campylobacter include:
· Any raw poultry (chicken is most common, as well as turkey, duck, goose, game fowl)
· Unpasteurized milk
· Undercooked meats such as beef, pork, lamb and livestock
· Fresh produce
Most cases of Campylobacter infection occur as isolated, sporadic events, and are not usually part of large outbreaks. But, very large Campylobacter outbreaks (>1,000 illnesses) of campylobacteriosis have been documented, most often from consumption of contaminated milk or unchlorinated water supplies.
