Summary: Campylobacter is a leading cause of enteric infections in many countries. The principal reservoir of pathogenic Campylobacter spp. is the alimentary tract of wild and domesticated mammals and birds.

Summary: This volume contains monographs on risk assessment of Campylobacter spp. in broiler chickens that have been prepared and reviewed by an international team of scientists. During their preparation input was received from several international fora including two expert consultations and the Codex Committee on Food Hygiene as well as via peer review. This assessment compared the risk for a variety of scenarios and mitigation measures for control of the organism in a range of broiler chicken products. It also includes a reviews and analysis of current scientific information and a description of the risk model. This volume and others in this Microbiological Risk Assessment Series contain information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk managers, including international scientific committees, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, governments and food regulatory agencies, scientists, food producers and industries and other people or institutions with an interest in the area of microbiological hazards in foods, their impact on human health and food trade and their control.
