Adopt A Microbe: Campylobacter jejuni

The Adopt A Microbe blog has a great post about Campylobacter jejuni. The blog is designed to teach kids about microbes in a book-like way online. One of the quotes from this post was from Campylobacter jejuni: “I get into people through dirty drinking water or undercooked meat, especialy chicken.” Kids should also know that proper handwashing and good sanitation in the kitchen can prevent C. jejuni from spreading from raw poultry or other foods to humans.
