Campylobacter is the most common bacterial cause of foodborne infections in the Netherlands. It is present in the intestines of many animal species including birds and Campylobacter can be found in the environment as well, especially in surface waters. When chickens are colonized, numbers of Campylobacter are usually very high and these animals have been shown to be the main source for campylobacteriosis in humans.
