Схоже, що так або навiть просто \"coliforms\". Багато прикладiв у Гуголi, та ще й цiкаве пояснення:

In 1892, Shardinger proposed the use of E. coli as an indicator of fecal contamination. ... Hence, the presence of E. coli in food or water became accepted as indicative of recent fecal contamination and the possible presence of frank pathogens. ... Although the concept of using E. coli as an indirect indicator of health risk was sound, it was complicated in practice, due to the presence of other enteric bacteria like Citrobacter, Klebsiella and Enterobacter that can also ferment lactose and are similar to E. coli in phenotypic characteristics, so that they are not easily distinguished. As a result, the term \"coliform\" was coined to describe this group of enteric bacteria. Coliform is not a taxonomic classification but rather a working definition used to describe a group of Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic rod-shaped bacteria that ferments lactose to produce acid and gas within 48 h at 35°C. In 1914, the U.S. Public Health Service adopted the enumeration of coliforms as a more convenient standard of sanitary significance.
