Salmonella, Campylobacter Cases at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

UTC food services were inspected in response to the apparent Salmonella and Campylobacter outbreak, and health department officials reported that no specific problems or mishandling of food was observed. At least 25 people have reportedly become ill with symptoms of diarrhea, fever and chills since August 20.

Salmonella and Campylobacter

Salmonella and Campylobacter bacteria cause gastrointestinal illness that generally causes diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain and fever. Both may cause bloody stools. Salmonella infection can also cause fever.

Both foodborne pathogens are often associated with the consumption of under-cooked poultry or cross-contamination.
