The Your Health blog has posted an article titled, “Gastroenteritis in Children,” in which the author discusses several different causes of gastrointestinal distress, one being Campylobacter infection. From the article:

Gastroenteritis can also be caused by consuming infected food (food poisoning). Vomiting is more prominent than diarrhea in a person who has food poisoning. There are many types of bacteria that can cause food poisoning. Salmonella, Shigella, Staphylococcus and Campylobacter are some of the common ones.”

The article’s author also points out that dehydration is a concern among children who become ill with a gastrointestinal illness, and that vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps are common symptoms.
