Abstract

Seventy-two laboratory confirmed cases of Campylobacter infection were identified in people who attended a large festival in England. A case-control study was undertaken to identify the vehicle of infection. Potential risk factors included the water supply to the site, and food, bottled spring water and unpasteurised milk sold at the event. Only the consumption of unpasteurised milk showed a statistical association with having a Campylobacter infection, strongly suggesting that this was the vehicle of infection.
