Soil microorganism that can cause food poisoning

Lineage: Bacteria[24060]; Firmicutes[3778]; Bacilli[1576]; Bacillales[1057]; Bacillaceae[467]; Bacillus[210]; Bacillus cereus group[21]; Bacillus cereus[1]
Bacillus cereus. This organism is a soil-dwelling opportunistic pathogen that causes food poisoning in infected individuals. There are two forms of food poisoning that occur, one is rapid onset (emetic) and the other is late onset (diarrheal). The rapid onset is characterized by nausea and vomiting while the late onset is characterized More...
