Objective
Determine the disinfectant (biocide) and antibiotic susceptibility profiles of 363 E. coli O157:H7 cattle feces, hide, carcass, and ground meat isolates from different parts of the United States, and statistically correlate this data with the PCR detection of the quaternary ammonium chloride resistance genes, incompatibility typing method, and PFGE analysis to describe these pathogenic bacteria.
