Enterococci may be considered an essential part of the autochthonous microflora of humans and animals. Faecal streptococci bearing the group D Lancefield antigens are grouped as Enterococci. Lancefield Group D- Streptococci constituting the faecal Streptococci are contaminants of various food commodities, especially those of animal origin. Kanamycin Esculin Azide Broth is formulated as per Mossel et al to detect Enterococci in foodstuffs. Mossel et al used it for the dip slide technique for bacteriological monitoring of foods.
There is no universal medium that will isolate all strains of Enterococci. Unless a presumptive count is acceptable all isolates should have their identity confirmed with further tests.
