Campylobacter. Symptoms: Severe diarrhoea and abdominal pain following a general feeling of illness are the symptoms most associated with this illness. Vomiting is rare. This illness may be confused with appendicitis. First symptoms can take 1-10 days (most commonly 2-5 days) from initial contact with the contaminated source.

The illness can last from 2 days to a week, and is very rarely fatal even in vulnerable groups. This illness is most closely associated with food, water and milk, which have been contaminated. Campylobacter is widely distributed in nature, and are also found in the intestinal tract of some animals, in particular poultry.
