The Campylobacter Issue


There are several species of campylobacter, but one in particular, campylobacter jejuni, is a human pathogen and tops the league table as the greatest cause of food poisoning in Europe. 


Around 214,000 cases of campylobacterosis were reported in 2014, with unreported cases approximated at 9 million, costing the European Union an estimated €2.4bn through healthcare costs and lost productivity. Campylobacterosis can, however, be fatal, with a staggering 100 deaths a year connected with the organism.
