“In 2016, Campylobacter jejuni has finally taken the spotlight as the new food superbug. In a ground-
breaking article published in US Food Safety Magazine, University of Leicester scientists Wanford, Ketley, and Bayliss in the UK confirmed that while Salmonella species are still responsible for a large number of outbreaks of foodborne illnesses, Campylobacter is now the most common bacteria associated with food poisoning and contamination in the European Union and in the United States. This was based on the Community Zoonoses Reports of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) which showed that campylobacteriosis has been the most commonly reported zoonosis in the EU followed by salmonellosis in the last 5 years.”
