Answer

Many Campylobacter infections are potentially preventable through education.

Meat and poultry should be cooked well.

Hands should be washed carefully after preparing food.

Parents should be informed that sick pets (eg, puppies, kittens) may harbor human pathogens and must be kept away from young children.

Untreated surface water and unpasteurized milk should be avoided.
