were isolated from 221 culture positive samples, out of which 33 (14.93%) were ESBL producers and 188 (85.07%) were non-ESBL producers.
Pathogenic bacteria (Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae
, Enterobacter aerogenes, Serratia spp., Citrobacter freundii, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) were found in 17 (18.7%) samples of milk/formula.
Six Gram-negative bacteria were selected for antimicrobial susceptibility including 3 isolates from Al-Ghat water bowl (Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae
complex, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa), 1 isolate from Hafar Al-Batin water bowl (Pseudomonas putida), 1 isolate from Riyadh mouthpiece (Escherichia coli), and 1 isolate from Hafar Al-Batin mouthpiece (Klebsiella oxytoca).

Zee, 2004.Association of Enterobacter cloacae
with rhizome rot of edible ginger in Hawaii.
Gene sequencing revealed isolates D5 and S2 to be closely related to Enterobacter cloacae
(99% sequence similarity) and Pseudomonas sp.
Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacter cloacae
isolates producing KPC-3, North Dakota, USA.
RESULTS: Of the 996 non-repeat isolates that were included in the study, the isolated organisms were E.coli (n=538), Klebsiella pneumoniae (n=350), Proteus mirabilis (n=31), Proteus vulgaris (n=21), Citrobacter freundii (n=20), Citrobacter koseri (n=16), Enterobacter cloacae
(n=7) and Enterobacter aerogenes (n=13).
coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Klebsiella oxytoca, Enterobacter cloacae
, or Enterobacter aerogenes that were nonsusceptible to imipenem, meropenem, or doripenem.
The bacterium was identified as Enterobacter cloacae
by biochemical assays, but 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis did not allow discrimination between E.
Microorganisms used in this study (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae
, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphyloccocus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Enterococcus faecalis, and the yeast Candida albicans) were isolated from the hospital environment (staff nurses hands, sinks, tubs, ground (floors), walls, beds, blankets, doors, doors handle, nurse tables, chairs, electronic equipment's, etc) at some hospitals in Yanbu city, Saudi Arabia.
