Food microbiology

Campylobacter are Gram-negative bacilli responsible of an increasing number of gastro-intestinal infections, which in fact have surpassed infections by Salmonella in several European countries as incidence. 90% of the infections are caused by  C. jejune  and  C. coli Campylobacter ’s diffusion is representing a public health problem with a significant economic impact.
Infections by Campylobacter have been associated to contaminated drinking water, milk, raw foods and occasionally poultry, especially during its handling in the food processing plants.
