There were four TTC ([greater than or equal to] 2.4 x [10.sup.5] to < 3.0 x [10.sup.5] MPN.[g.sup.-1]): Escherichia coli, Enterobacter gergoviae Brenner et al., 1980, Enterobacter aerogenes (Edwards e Ewing, 1962), and Enterobacter sakazakii (Farmer et al., 1980).
Two hundred and twenty-five bacterial isolates were tested; upon analysis of the numerical results, the most successful antibiotic producers were revealed to be POXD2F100 (closest relative being Enterobacter gergoviae) against B.
