Abstract

Using PCR techniques Shiga toxin-producing strains of Escherichia coli were isolated from the faeces of 45 out of 101 healthy sheep. These strains were serotyped and found to include O5:H-, O91:H- and O163:H19, which had previously been reported as being associated with human disease including haemolytic uraemic syndrome.
