Jor*: Strains were isolated from food and environmental samples collected in Jordan and were deposited in the Egyptian Microbial Culture Collection (EMCC; Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt) and their 16S rRNA sequences were deposited in the GenBank. C: clinical samples isolated from patients obtained from CDC (Atlanta, GA, USA) and were a gift from Dr. Ben Davies Tall from U.S. FDA. All the other isolates were obtained from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) except for Salmonella which obtained from the Collection of Institute Pasteur (CIP) and S. sonnei which was a local strain
