Shiga toxigenic Escherichia coli (STEC) are important foodborne pathogens causing gastrointestinal disease worldwide. Bacterial attachment to food surfaces, such as stainless steel may lead to cross contamination of foods and subsequent foodborne disease. A variety of STEC isolates, including E. coli O157:H7/H- strains, were grown in planktonic (broth) and sessile (agar) culture, following which initial attachment to stainless steel was determined using epifluorescence microscopy.
