    Abstract

    Campylobacter spp.-related gastroenteritis in diners at a catering college restaurant was associated with consumption of duck liver pǎté. Population genetic analysis indicated that isolates from duck samples were typical of isolates from farmed poultry. Campylobacter spp. contamination of duck liver may present a hazard similar to the increasingly recognized contamination of chicken liver.
