Food bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of two different unidentified bacteria interacting on chicken flesh.

Raw meat must always be stored correctly and properly cooked, in order to prevent food poisoning by bacteria and other micro-organisms. Magnification: x13,400 at 6x7cm size.
