Pantoea agglomerans (Enterobacter agglomerans)

An aerobic gram-negative bacillus that grows readily on most microbiological media producing a yellow colony with either a smooth, rough or mucoid consistency. It can be isolated from plants, flowers, seeds, soil, water, and foodstuffs. It is capable of causing infections in immunologically compromised patients (neonates, premature infants, burned or multiple traumatized patients, patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy, or patients with leukemia).
