Multilocus sequence typing of 31 stx-carrying Escherichia coli O26:H11 strains isolated in Canada between 1999 and 2003 revealed a high degree of genetic relatedness at 10 loci, suggesting either that this is a clonal serotype (similar to O157:H7) or that additional genetic loci need to be examined.
