Caution advised: Campylobacter is and infection causing diarrhea, which is often bloody. It is commonly found in uncooked foods such as poultry. It is also spread through a fecal/oral route from human to human, so it can be prevented with good hand washing. It is self-limited, but without treatment can last up to two weeks. Treatment with certain antibiotics can shorten the course of the disease.
