Escherichia coli (abbreviated as E. coli) are bacteria found in the environment, foods, and intestines of people and animals. Most E. coli are harmless and are an important part of a healthy human intestinal tract. However, some E. coli can cause diarrhea, urinary tract infections, respiratory illness, bloodstream infections, and other illnesses. The types of E. coli that can cause illness can be spread through contaminated water or food, or through contact with animals or people.
