Abstract

Campylobacter jejuni is a leading bacterial cause of foodborne illness in developed countries. Major environmental reservoirs of the pathogen include farm animals and wild birds. Through incidental contamination during livestock production, Campylobacter jejuni can enter and proliferate in slaughter, packing, and processing systems and contaminate food to cause human diseases. In addition to foodborne illness, zoonotic transmission of C. jejuni to humans has been frequently reported. This review simply describes the role and epidemiological investigations of ruminants in the transmission of C. jejuni from farms to humans.
