Isolates of STEC O157:H7 and non-O157 were only present in samples obtained from farm A. All samples from farms B–F were negative for STEC O157:H7 and non-O157 isolates.
bOn farm A, 28 of the STEC O157 isolates belonged to one PFGE group (at >92% similarity) and the remaining 4 isolates belonged to another PFGE group.
