The Food Standards Agency has today published a study to further determine the principal sources of this foodborne disease.
Year 1 of a UK-wide survey of campylobacter contamination on fresh chickens at retail (February 2014 to February 2015)
The 12-month survey, running from February 2014 to February 2015, looked at the prevalence and levels of campylobacter contamination on fresh whole chilled chickens and their packaging.
How campylobacter is spread and how to minimise your chances of eating food contaminated with campylobacter.
The report summarises 20 years of data on AMR in campylobacter in UK-produced chicken, spanning a range of different surveys. It describes time trends in AMR for the key antimicrobials important for human health and explores associations with production (and other) factors. It provides an annex that links researchers to a unified database containing the underpinning data.
