Campylobacter is a pathogen that causes foodborne illness. Symptoms of this illness include diarrhea that is often bloody, fever, and abdominal cramps. People usually start feeling sick two to five days after exposure to this pathogen.

Patients who are sickened with this bacteria are at risk for developing Guillain-Barré syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that damages the nerves in the body. Most people recover from this complication, but some have permanent nerve damage, and can experience whole body paralysis. Symptoms of Guillain-Barré syndrome include tingling and weakness in both legs, which can spread to the arms and upper body.

If you drank this raw goat milk and have been ill with the symptoms of Campylobacter food poisoning, see your doctor. You may be part of this outbreak.
