Escherichia coli strains isolated in Sao Paulo, Brazil, from feces of patients with diarrhea and from food samples produced toxin(s) that was shown to be related both immunologically and genetically to the recently characterized type II heat-labile enterotoxin of E. coli. The new isolates of type II heat-labile enterotoxin-producing E. coli belonged to five different serotypes and did not represent a single clone.
