Abstract Escherichia coli was seeded onto the surface of beef and chicken muscle fascia and the growth at 20 and 4°C was followed by electron microscopy. At 20°C the organisms grew as discrete colonies, the bacteria bound together by a dense glycocalyx; the colonies eventually coalesced to cover a large proportion of the surface. Growth was always associated with production of the glycocalyx. At 4°C growth was slower, the colonies remaining small and discrete; by 12 days different colonial morphology indicated psychrotrophic organisms were predominant.
