Is there cross contamination of Campylobacter from retail chicken to other meats? 

Chicken camplyobacter

Campylobacter is the most common bacteria causing human gastroenteritis globally.  

While chicken serves as the primary source of Campylobacter, there exists a potential risk of cross-contamination to other meats in retail. However, we do not know the extent of such cross-contamination. 

A research project, funded by FSRN, aims to understand the degree of Campylobacter cross-contamination to other meats within butcher shops and supermarkets. Led by London Metropolitan University, the team will help to give recommendations on preventative measures to control or minimise the Campylobacter contamination.
