All About E. Coli (Escherichia Coli)
Everyone's welcome at a barbecue. Or are they? A hilarious gag gift for cooks and a great reminder to practice safe food handling.
FACTS: The Escherichia coli bacterium was identified in 1885 by Austrian physician Theodor von Escherich. Its peritrichous flagella (the hairs which can sprout anywhere on its body) can twirl around, propelling it forward at the bacterial-equivalent speed of a torpedo.
Many strains of E. coli are harmless, and huge numbers are present in the human and animal gut. In addition, E. coli is among the most studied of all creatures great and small. Not only is it ubiquitous, but it is simple to cultivate. Under ideal conditions it can divide every 20 minutes; a single cell can become over a billion in less than 10 hours!
Nevertheless, E. coli can also escape the confines of the human and animal intestinal tracts and cause both urinary and serious abdominal infections. And of course, certain strains (such as the infamous O157:H7) can cause food poisoning as well.
Though E. coli outbreaks have been attributed to a variety of causes (such as unpasteurized milk and contaminated water) undercooked ground beef is among the most common causes. Contamination typically occurs at the slaughterhouse, when cattle’s internal bacteria are inadvertently brought into contact with the beef’s surface. The grinding process then distributes the bacteria throughout the beef, where it is more likely to be undercooked.
Because E. coli contamination requires very few bacteria, contaminated meat looks and smells normal. So, if you’re a carnivore, the surest way of avoiding a close encounter with E. coli is to cook your meat thoroughly – and have your steak tartare well-done.

This is another mini game that is easy to play and very fun! Well worth the price, and makes a fun conversation piece!
I just adore these mini games, and Jenga is awesome! The blocks stack well, and we use tweezers to actually play! One of my favorites! If you have cats, don't let them grab the pieces, haha! Mine like to swipe them and not give them back!
I wanted to leave a review because I noticed the negative reviews left. I own a few of these, and of course I didn't anticipate them to actually work well, because they're very small and not powered. They do somewhat work, by pressing the button at the bottom to send the little gel-like substance upward. I'm satisfied, because I just love mini replicas of everything! These are fun!
This is a great deal for all 6 mini trolls! They're adorable, and look just like the larger trolls I collected as a child! Shipping was quick, and the items are packaged well! I'm so glad I found these here!
Cute and made well! I will give to my granddaughter to help complete her collection of Cats vs Pickles.
Shipped securely and arrived quickly, came in excellent condition, great customer service communication and very reasonable pricing. Thank you!
