Escherichia coli are Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, rod-shaped, coliform bacteria that are commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. Most strains are harmless, but some serotypes can cause serious food poisoning in their host. The harmless strains are part of the normal microbiota of the gut, and can benefit their hosts by producing vitamin K2 and preventing colonization of the intestine with pathogenic bacteria.
