Food Safety Toolbox

Annually, over 800,000 Americans suffer from campylobacteriosis, an infectious diarrheal disease. Scientists from Iowa State University developed an on-line toolbox that helps consumers, producers and processors to manage and reduce the incidence of human illness caused by Campylobacter jejuni.

The resource provides tips to reduce campylobacteriosis in humans; on-farm risk assessment to identify production vulnerabilities; and reduce carcass contamination in commercial and back-yard flocks

NIFA supports the research through the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI).
