"Infections with organisms acquired from these animals can involve many organ systems including the gastrointestinal tract, skin, lungs, blood and central nervous system. Organisms which have been associated with outbreaks include Salmonella species, E. coli 0157:H7, Campylobacter species, Cryptosporidum species, and lymphocytic choriomeningitis. Dr. Pickering discussed regulations and recommendations applicable to these exposures and defined measures which can minimize or prevent illness in children from exposure to these animals.
