Radio New Zealand reported that the New Zealand Health Authority is working to prevent Campylobacter from reaching consumers there. In an explanation of why Campylobacter infection is common, and is a serious concern, the health authority stated that, “Cmpylobacter exists in farm animals generally but poultry is regarded as the primary pathway for spreading the disease to consumers. . . . [T]he disease is probably entering the food chain with the birds at the farm.”
