Other Bacterial Pathogens

Several other bacterial pathogens are associated with food products of animal origin, but their contribution to foodborne disease has been overshadowed by the impact of the aforementioned four pathogens in recent years. They include additional pathogenic serotypes of E. coli, Yersinia enterocolitica (a psychrotroph of enteric origin), Staphylococcus aureus (a Gram-positive, heat-stable, enterotoxin-producing mesophile), Clostridium botulinum (a deadly, neurotoxin-producing spore-former), Clostridium perfringens (a common cause of gastrointestinal discomfort of short duration), and Bacillus cereus (a spore-forming mesophile or psychrotroph causing diarrheal or emetic illness). Detailed information on these and other pathogens of less current concern can be found in several publications1-1-8-1 and at www.cfsan.fda.gov.
