Campylobacter is the most common cause of bacterial diarrhea in usa. Second common is salmonella. This is all actually stated in FA in order. Check pg.176 of FA 2011-- bloody diarrhea section. It lists, Common causes of bloody diarrhea in order, the first 3 being the most common--Campylobacter, salmonella, and shigella, and less common like E.coli and yersinia.
