 Presence of Escherichia coli O157:H7 on fresh goat meat samples (n= 40) of Dhaka city was analyzed using conventional and molecular methods. A total of 86 presumptive E. coli O157:H7 colonies were isolated from 60% of the samples using selective agar plating method. After conventional biochemical assay followed by API 20E assay, only 11 isolates were found to be E. coli O157:H7. Further serological test identified only four isolates that has strong agglutination reaction against anti-H7 sensitized latex. The biochemically and serologically confirmed isolates were then screened for major virulence factors include eaeA, rfbE, fliC, stx1 and stx2 genes by PCR. PCR analysis of positive isolates showed, 10 isolates were eaeA and rfbE genes positive but fliC gene was only in six, indicating that these isolates were H7 positive with flagellum antigens which might not expressed or detected in serotyping tests. Multiplex PCR against eaeA, stx1 and stx2 genes of the isolates showed similar results as when done individually. These results revealed that only 7% of the primary presumptive E. coli O157:H7 was found to be stx producing E. coli O157:H7 and thus greatly influenced the detection of the pathogen in meat samples.
