ersinia enterocolitica. Y. enterocolitica (Ye for short) is one of the etiological agents of yersiniosis, and according to the CDC, Ye is the main cause here in the United States. The disease typically presents as fever, abdominal pain, and diarrhea and is often contracted by eating undercooked pork. It can often be confused as appendicitis. It's main target is children, though anyone is susceptible, especially those who suffer from hereditary hemochromatosis.
