Undercooked Chicken Causes GBS

New Evidence Shows How Bacterium in Undercooked Chicken Causes GBS

This post demonstrates the importance of adequate cooking time for Chicken and Poultry in particular.


Newswise — A Michigan State University research team is the first to show how a common bacterium found in improperly cooked chicken causes Guillain-Barre Syndrome, or GBS.

The federally funded research, now published in the Journal of Autoimmunity, not only demonstrates how this food-borne bacterium, known as Campylobacter jejuni, triggers GBS, but offers new information for a cure.

If chicken isn't cooked to the proper minimum internal temperature, bacteria can still exist.
