A group of 1,623 ovine fecal samples recovered from 65 geographically distinct mutton sheep and prime lamb properties across New South Wales, Australia, were screened for the presence of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) virulence factors (stx(1), stx(2), eaeA, and ehxA). A subset was cultured for STEC isolates containing associated virulence factors (eaeA and/or ehxA), which were isolated from 17 of 20 (85%) and 19 of 20 (95%) tested prime lamb and mutton sheep properties… CONTINUE READING
