Wikipedia Abstract

Yersinia enterocolitica is a Gram-negative bacillus-shaped bacterium, belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Y. enterocolitica infection causes the disease yersiniosis, which is a zoonotic disease occurring in humans, as well as a wide array of animals such as cattle, deer, pigs, and birds. Many of these animals recover from the disease and become asymptomatic carriers.
