Yersinia infections outside the digestive tract are rare but usually result from blood dissemination from the gut in immunocompromised subjects [6].
According to surveys around the world, most Yersinia infections have occurred in infants and young children (17,18).
Compared with the 2013-2015 average annual incidence, the 2016 incidence of confirmed Campylobacter infections was lower, incidences of confirmed Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC), Yersinia, and Cryptosporidium infections were higher, and incidences of confirmed or CIDT positive-only STEC and Yersinia infections were higher.
coli 0157 poisoning decreased 42%, Campylobacter infections decreased 31%, Cryptosporidium infections decreased 40%, and Yersinia infections decreased 45%.
Yersinia infections have decreased 49 percent, and Cryptosporidium infections have decreased 51 percent.
Less common bacterial food-borne illnesses also were down, with a 49% drop in Yersinia infections and a 35% decrease in Shigella infections (MMWR 51[15]:325-29, 2002).
