Israel has seen a sharp increase in infections caused by the Campylobacter bacterium, which enters the digestive system through contaminated meat and poultry, causing intestinal inflammation. Data from the Health Ministry showed that in the first six months of 2024, a record number of 3,402 Israelis had already been infected. The primary source of illness is exposure to fresh poultry in the home kitchen. The Health Ministry has urged the public to take preventive measures, such as separating fresh poultry from ready-to-eat food, thoroughly cooking poultry, and disinfecting kitchen surfaces after handling poultry parts.
