This risk profile concerns Campylobacter in offal (liver and kidney). In New Zealand, the prevalence of Campylobacter in offal in general is high. External contamination of poultry livers in one study was 100%, while internal contamination was 90%. Sheep liver has a contamination prevalence of approximately 38.9% to 66.9%. Bovine and porcine offals appear to be less commonly contaminated (<10%).
