Abstract

The term 'food poisoning' includes all diseases caused by taking unhealthy, rotten or poisonous food. In most cases, caused by food contamination with different bacteria. One of the bacteria that live in human intestines is Escherichia coli (E. coli) and most strains are harmless and do not cause reactions in the body in general. However, some strains of E. coli can cause damage if they are entered into the human body, because they produce toxins and these strains are pathogenic. In this work I will write about the food poisoning caused by E. coli, and all toxic strains of this bacterium. I will comment on the latest case of food poisoning that has occurred in Germany 2011 and about E. coli strain 0104. In the end I will still say something about the phenomenon 'superbacteria' and the cause of their resistance to antibiotics.
