On the purpose of epidemiological survey related to foods poisoning, a total of 316 specimens collected from street vended foods in Pusan area were examined for the presence of Campylobacter Jejuni(C. jejuni) and also the isolation rates, biochemical properties and antibiotic susceptibility were investigated. Of the 316 specimens, 13 strain(4.1%) of Campylobacter jejuni were isolated. Isolation rate for each food was 37.5% in gizzard, 4.1% in Korean sausage and 3.9% in kimpop. Isolated C. jejuni were grouped as biotype I(84.6%), II(7.7%) and IV(7.7%). C. jejuni isolated from street vended foods were resistant to cephalothin(100%), penicillin(84.6%) and erythromycin(76.9%), but sensitive to gentamicin(92.3%), kanamycin(84.7%) and chloramphenicol(77.0%).
