"Enterobacter aerogenes" is a Gram-negative, oxidase negative, catalase positive, rod-shaped bacterium.

"E. aerogenes" is a nosocomial and pathogenic bacterium that causes opportunistic infections in skin and other tissues. Some strains can become very treatment resistant, a result of their colonization within hospital environments.

Most of the infections caused by "E. aerogenes" result from specific antibiotic treatments, venous catheter insertions, and/or surgical procedures. "E. aerogenes" is generally found in the human gastrointestinal tract and does not generally cause disease in healthy individuals. It has been found to live in various wastes, hygenic chemicals, and soil. The bacterium also has some commercial significance - the hydrogen gas produced during fermentation has been experimented with using molasses as the substrate.

It may spoil maple sap and syrup. [ [http://gchava.myweb.uga.edu/organisms.html MICROBES INVOLVED IN FOOD SPOILAGE] Authors: Gabriel Chavarria, Julia Neal, Parul Shah, Katrina Pierzchala, Bryant Conger]
