Abstract

A model was developed for the temperature dependence of growth rate of a non-pathogeniC Escherichia coli strain. The suitability of that model for predicting the growth rate of pathogenic E. coli strains was assessed. Growth rates of pathogenic strains were found to be adequately described by the model. Model predictions were also found to describe sufficiently well- published growth rate data for non-pathogenic E. coli on mutton carcase surfaces and E. coli O157:H7 in ground roasted beef, milk, and on cantaloupes and water melons. In addition, E. coli O157:H7 was found to grow in the region of 44-45.5°C.
