Campylobacter jejuni was an almost regular finding in chickens and in minced meat from pigs and cattle sold in ordinary food stores. The bacteria survived on the food at 4 degrees C for one week and frozen at -20 degrees C for three months. None of the strains tested survived heat treatment at 60 degrees C for longer than 15 min. C. jejuni is apparently a frequent guest in most kitchens. Correct food handling and heat treatment to at least 60 degrees C for 15 min should be enough to prevent infection.
