Contact a Campylobacter LawyerSymptoms of campylobacteriosis include diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain and fever. These symptoms develop two to five days after exposure and can last about a week. During this time, the diarrhea can become bloody and sometimes there is also nausea and vomiting. Infections in young children, seniors and those with weakened immune systems can cause serious health problems. Anyone who develops these symptoms after drinking raw milk should see a doctor.

Unpasteurized dairy products and undercooked poultry are the most common sources of Campylobacter infections. Food and drinks that are contaminated with Campylobacter do not have an off taste or smell. The best way to reduce risk is to use a food thermometer to check that poultry is cooked to 165˚F and avoid unpasteurized dairy products.
