You don't want THAT in your FOOD! Was your specific ID Pantoea 
agglomerans by chance? If so, that's the "new" name for The Organism 
Formerly Known As Enterobacter agglomerans. ;-) Look up the genus 
Enterobacter in your Bergey's, and E. agglomerans if that's the bug your 
ID gave you. It's a fecal coliform, which is why you don't want it in 
your food.
