Campylobacter (or campylobacteriosis) is an illness resulting from ingestion of the Campylobacter bacteria. The CDC estimates that 1.5 million people in the United Sates suffer foodborne illnesses from campylobacter every year.
Campylobacter has many symptoms that are commonly associated with food poisoning, such as:
- Nausea and vomiting;
- Diarrhea, often containing blood;
- Fever; and
- Stomach cramps.
The CDC indicates that campylobacter symptoms typically manifest 2 to 5 days after ingestion. The main symptom of campylobacter is diarrhea. Like any foodborne illness, severe diarrhea or vomiting can lead to dehydration and dizziness. If you, or a loved one, become severely dehydrated as the result of an apparent foodborne illness, please seek the advice of a medical professional immediately.
Because foodborne illnesses like campylobacter are often generalized as “food poisoning” and symptoms typically clear up naturally, few cases receive an official medical diagnosis. A small number of campylobacter cases require antibiotic treatment prescribed by a medical professional.
In some cases, campylobacter can have a greater and long-lasting impact. People with more severe cases of campylobacter may experience arthritis, temporary paralysis or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
According to the CDC, some people are at greater risk of serious, life-threatening infection from campylobacter. These people tend to have pre-existing conditions, such as:
- Blood disorders;
- AIDS; or
- A medical condition resulting in chemotherapy treatment.
In these cases, the CDC says the campylobacter may spread to the bloodstream and could ultimately result in a life-threatening infection.

A person becomes ill with campylobacter after ingesting food that has been contaminated with the campylobacter bacteria.
Some common causes of campylobacter illness include:
- The bacteria are present on raw or undercooked meat including beef, pork, poultry and seafood;
- The bacteria transfers from raw meat to another food via cross-contamination on surfaces, hands, utensils or through direct contact of raw meat with another food;
- The bacteria transfers from unwashed hands to food; or
- The bacteria are present on fresh produce.
Campylobacter may contaminate food that we eat at home or food we consume at food service establishments. Contamination may happen on produce farms, during the stocking or transport process, or during food preparation. If food is not handled properly, campylobacter may transfer from one food to the next and cause serious illness.
If you believe you contracted campylobacter from a restaurant, you may be entitled to compensation. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. and its highly experienced team of campylobacter food poisoning personal injury lawyers in Buffalo, New York, will work diligently in their attempt to get you the compensation and peace of mind you deserve. Contact us today at 716-839-3939 so we can begin the fight for you!
When food is prepared at a food service establishment, the employees must take appropriate measures to ensure that the food remains safe. Many procedures must be followed to ensure the elimination of campylobacter from food and to prevent cross-contamination with other food items. These procedures include, but are not limited to:
- Employees must wash hands before touching any food, after touching raw meat, after eating or after using the restroom;
- Employees must wear gloves when touching food that will not be cooked further;
- Meat must be cooked to a safe temperature (typically 165 degrees Fahrenheit) and menus must include warnings about the consumption of undercooked or raw meat;
- Food preparation surfaces must be cleansed and disinfected following preparation of raw meat or eggs;
- Produce must be appropriately washed; and
- Produce must not be stored or prepared in a manner that can potentially lead to contact with raw foods.
Food service establishments undergo regular inspections to ensure they comply with safety standards. However, unsafe practices are still incredibly common. If a food service establishment fails to comply with these standards, and the failure results in campylobacter illness, the sick person may be entitled to compensation.
If you, or someone you love, suffered food poisoning as a result of campylobacter consumption, and that consumption resulted from the unsafe practices of a food service establishment, contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. today.
