Yersiniosis is an infection caused mostly by eating raw or undercooked pork that is contaminated with the bacteria. Pigs are the main animals that spreads the disease but it can be found in rodents, rabbits, sheep, cattle, horses, dogs and cats. People can occasionally become infected after drinking milk or water that is contaminated with infected animal feces.
