Escherichia fergusonii is an emerging potentially zoonotic organism which has been recovered from a broad range of human and animal sources. Efforts to recover E. fergusonii from mixed flora hitherto however have been constrained by the lack of a suitable selective medium for its isolation. This paper reports for the first time the recovery of E. fergusonii from reindeer carcases in a wildlife park and the use of citrate adonitol agar to selectively screen for the presence of this organism in… CONTINUE READING
