Food risk assessment, Food Safety, Food safety and suitability research
This Risk Profile considers Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli in raw milk from
cows, sheep, goats and buffaloes. Infection by C. jejuni or C. coli in humans usually results
in a self-limiting gastroenteritis which may or may not involve bloody diarrhoea. In a small
proportion of cases infection may progress to more serious autoimmune disorders or chronic
gastrointestinal diseases. On rare occasions infection may result in death.
