Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli are the two bacteria responsible for the great majority of human campylobacteriosis cases. This disease is transmitted from animals to humans (zoonosis) most often through the alimentary route (mainly poultry, but also beef, pork and contaminated water), as well as through contact with infected individuals, animals or carcasses. It is characterised by acute enteritis caused by an intestinal infection, followed, in 4 out of 5 cases, by spontaneous recovery within several days. This information sheet presents the disease as well as recommendations for controlling contamination.
