The bacterium Campylobacter is considered to be the most common bacterial cause of human gastroenteritis in the world. Campylobacteriosis is a zoonosis, meaning that the disease is transmitted to humans from animals or animal by-products. The bacterium is widely distributed in most warm blood mammals, such as cattle, poultry, sheep and domestic pets and the main route of transmission is food-borne, generally through undercooked meat and poultry and raw or contaminated milk.
