Montana Raw Water Campylobacter Outbreak Linked to Bird’s Nest

A Montana raw water Campylobacter outbreak in 2022 has been linked to a bird's nest in a concrete cache from Kennedy Creek, according to ARS Technica. Nineteen people were sickened in that outbreak, and one person was hospitalized. The water was untreated, taken from a concrete box that siphoned off water from the creek located near Paradise, Montana. Officials believe that the box was build in the early 1900s to stop erosion from a railroad track bed. Officials found an empty bird's nest inside the box, which was the likely source of the pathogen. Campylobacter was found in the water. Whole genome sequencing showed that the bacteria in the water was a match to isolates from patients sickened in this outbreak. The box was posted saying that the water was not safe to drink.

High Winds Increase Campylobacter Prevalence in Chicken Flocks

A study published in the journal Animals, by Washington State University, has found that high winds increase Campylobacter prevalence in outdoor chicken flocks.

If there's a lot of wind and if they're in really agricultural … [Read more...]
