Abstract:

Antibiogram of twenty six (26) E.coli strains obtained from a hundred and fifty satchets of zoborodo drink against eight antibiotics were carried out to investigate incidence of broad spectrum resistance. Broad spectrum resistance was taken as resistance to ampicillin and cephalothin. Resistance of 69 and 92% of the E.coli to ampicillin and cephalothin respectively was obtained, amounting to 92% broad spectrum resistance. E.coli exhibiting single antibiotic resistance were all resistant to only cephalothin while all the multiple antibiotic resistance E.coli were resistant to both ampicillin and cephalothin. Measures should be taken to increase the hygienic conditions of zoborodo preparation
