Enteritis caused by Campylobacter spp. is now the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis both in the UK and worldwide.
There are, however, difficulties in assessing the true incidence of campylobacter enteritis because of under-reporting.
This is because in many cases the illness caused by infection by Campylobacter spp. is relatively mild.
Despite the recent introduction of more stringent food safety laws, the trend in foodborne illness caused by Campylobacter spp. continues upwards in the UK.
Preventative methods based at the beginning of the food chain may prove a more effective means of controlling the incidence of the illness than those already in place.
