- ... Bacterial biofilms are one of the potential sources of cross-contamination in food processing environments. Shiga toxin– producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157:H7 and O111:H8 are important foodborne pathogens capable of forming biofilms, and the coexistence of these two STEC serotypes has been detected in various food samples and in multiple commercial meat plants throughout the United States.
