Pathogens

Some of the different bacterias that cause foodborne illnesses include salmonella, campylobacter, shigella, escherichia coli, clostridium botulinum, vibrio, listeria monocytogenes, and clostirdium perfingens. Salmonella is commonly found in animal intestines and is transmitted through food that has been contaminated by fecal matter. Campylobacter is transmitted through undercooked poultry and contaminated water. All of these bacterias are transmitted due to undercooked or unsanitary foods.
