Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A point-source outbreak or campylobacter infection affected 24 of 51 delegates attending a business lunch. Failure to detect any specific vehicle for the infection led to observations of kitchen practice. Experiments demonstrated that cross-contamination as a result of handling raw and cooked food consecutively was a possible cause of the outbreak.
