Supplementary Material

Fresh cultures of the isolated coliforms were inoculated into tubes containing lactose peptone water and Durham tubes. Two batches were prepared; one was incubated at 37°C and the other at 44°C for 24 h. The tubes were inspected for acid (yellow color) and gas (in the Durham tubes) production.
