Campylobacter continues to be the major cause of human gastrointestinal illness in Australia, with rates of infection approximately double those for Salmonella spp. each year.
Worldwide, it is now recognised that there are multiple non-poultry potential sources for transmission of Campylobacter into the human population. While undercooked poultry products continue to be accepted as a significant exposure method, there is now a better appreciation that other exposure methods exist and play a role in the overall picture of human campylobacteriosis.
