Campylobacter prevalence from retail liver (chicken, cattle, pig and sheep) was found to be 81%, 69%, 79% and 78% respectively. Molecular source attribution demonstrated that strains from chicken liver were most similar to those found commonly in humans. This provides further evidence of liver being a probable source of human infection.
