General Information: This organism is a swine-specific Brucella. It causes infectious abortions in animals and a systemic, febrile (feverish) illness in humans. Human infection usually occurs by accidental contact with infected animals or by ingestion of contaminated food. Brucella suis is considered a potential bioterrorism agent and was the first pathogenic organism to be weaponized by the USA.
