It is one of the predominant bacteria isolated from domestic kitchens and student sponge samples [ 3 , 5 , 32 ]. This bacterium can cause septicemia, pneumonia and urinary tract infection [ 34 ]. The pathogenicity of R. The symptoms of which includes vomiting and flushing [ 38 ]. Infection can be acquired through ingestion of contaminated food [ 41 ]. Pantoea spp. Kluyvera sp. The emergence of multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae is a major concern to human health.
In the present study, the antibiograms of the Enterobacteriaceae isolates showed that all E. Similar to our findings, E. The increasing antibiotic resistance of pathogenic bacteria is a major public health issue as that will increase foodborne illnesses and narrow treatment choices [ 50 ]. In conclusion, female students live in dormitories at the University of Sharjah showed a lack of general knowledge regarding good hygienic practices. Kitchen sponges which were primarily for cleaning food contact surfaces, were often used for other general purposes and kept for prolonged periods of time.
Leaving the sponges at room temperature for a few days did not reduce the microbial load of the sponges. These sponges were colonized by potentially pathogenic bacteria, which encoded for various antibiotic resistances. Students need to be reminded of good hygienic practices in order to reduce the risk of contaminating ready to eat food from raw foods, and the kitchen environment including the floor. This study has some potential limitations; the sample size was small and the study was conducted with female students as the data were collected by females who were not allowed to enter males dormitories; thus, further research is needed to include more students from both genders from other universities.

Microb Drug Resist. Download references. Box , Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Tareq M. Osaili, Reyad S. Nik had been working on a sample-based four on the floor sound and their combined sonic concepts led to the birth of The Sponges.
Marc Spence was the one who responded and he asked if he could send it to Box of Cats. Box Of Cats feels great because Wongo is so open-minded and such a big brother to us. To have made a song with Kyle Watson is amazing. A lot of the big labels have such a specific sound that producers cater to. Staying true to The Sponges sound, the track is another masterclass in sampling and funky beats.
The Sample we picked [for this one] was because the guy sounded like James Brown. Ryan and Nik hope to eventually get into the studio with jam bands in order to fully flesh out their funk sound. The Sponges will be putting out a track with Griz in July, and will hopefully be coming to a city near you soon. Log in. Join our community. United States. Overview Spotlight. Artist Spotlight.
