Is the pathogen contagious or infectious
This pathogen, Campylobacter, is infectious bacteria.
How does the pathogen enter the body?
Campylobacter enters the body through contact with the raw juices from the chicken. One drop of the juice is enough to infect a person with this bacterium.
Prevention & Treatment
1. Cook all poultry products thoroughly to an internal temperature of 165*F. Juices must run clear!

2. Wash hands with soap before AND after preparing food.

3. Prevent cross-contamination in the kitchen by using separate cutting boards. Thoroughly clean all cutting boards, countertops, and utensils with soap and hot water after preparing raw food of animal origin.

4. Do not drink unpasteurized milk or untreated surface water.
