FOOD businesses in Suffolk have been warned to get wise about bacteria that cause more outbreaks of food poisoning than the other usual suspects.
Babergh district council has published the second issue of its FoodWise newsletter for local food businesses with a strong warning about the dangers of Campylobacter.
Technical officer Emma Richbell said: "In many respects, Campylobacter is the unknown bacteria, but it accounts for nearly three times as many cases of food poisoning as Salmonella and E coli combined."
In the latest issue, the council is trying to raise the profile of the bacteria, including its sources, its effects and how to control it, so that Babergh's food businesses are both forewarned and forearmed.

Ms Richbell added: "FoodWise exists to provide food businesses with timely and accurate information and advice. As such it aims to help promote best practice in food hygiene and to ensure that Babergh's food businesses are amongst the safest in the country."
