|Abstract:||Campylobacter is a leading cause of foodborne illness worldwide. In Thailand, food related campylobacteriosis illness is infrequently reported and little epidemiological and outbreak data were available. This research was to investigate number of C. jejuni in chicken products that cause infection and illness for children in Thailand. Data from literatures, publications, and our laboratory results were collected. In our study, steamed chicken breast and chicken karaage samples collected from the processing plant were analyzed for Campylobacter. C. jejuni was not found in any product tested. The predicted numbers of C. jejuni in karaage product were derived from the contamination rates of Listeria monocytogenes in the same product and used for calculation of probability of infection (R-value = 2.13×10-5) the Exponential dose response model. The probability of acquiring campylobacteriosis from consumption of contaminated chicken was 0.258. Probability of campylobacteriosis illness caused from chicken meat consumption in Thailand of actual and model data were 0.0541 and 0.0809, respectively. This study suggests that 61 to 173 organisms of C. jejuni in chicken meat were sufficient to cause infection for Thai high risk group (less than 5 years of age).Probability of campylobacteriosis illness caused from chicken meat consumption in Thailand of actual and model data were 0.0541 and 0.0809, respectively.
