My name is Escherichia coli or E.coli in short. I am a bacterium. Some strains of E.coli are harmless, but some of my sisters can cause serious food poisoning in humans. I am also an indicator of fecal contamination and one of my most favorite foods is meat. What else do you need to know about me? Make sure you are checking the expiry date of the food products you are buying. Oh…did I tell you I can also be found in water?
