2The Poultry Site – Campylobacteriosis is the most reported zoonotic disease in humans, with a continuous increase in reported cases over the last five years, according to the annual report on zoonoses and food-borne outbreaks in the European Union.

The trend in reported human cases of verocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli (VTEC/STEC) has also been increasing since 2008 and was further strengthened due to the outbreak in the summer of 2011. However, Salmonella cases in humans have continued to fall, marking a decrease for the seventh consecutive year.

The report, which has just been published for 2011, produced jointly by the European Food Safety Authority and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) supports the European Commission and EU Member States in monitoring risks related to zoonotic diseases.
