Food Poisoning With Chicken


The bacteria campylobacter is the most common cause of food-induced diarrhea in the world, according to the Center for Disease Control, a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.


Campylobacter lives in most birds' digestive tracts, and almost all raw chicken and other poultry contain the bacteria.


Campylobacter infection symptoms include diarrhea, fever and abdominal pain.


Campylobacter can also infect other food if raw chicken juices drip onto them.


Chickens also carry salmonella bacteria in their ovaries, which is why eating raw eggs can also lead to food poisoning.
