I would say that one of the most harmful bacteria here in the United States is Escherichia coli. This bacterium is better known simply as E. coli and is a major cause of food poisoning. There are many cases of foods having to be recalled because they have become contaminated with E. coli and have caused sickness and even death in people who ate the contaminated food.

Anthrax is a pretty bad one. MRSA which is a strain of staph that is resistant to most antibiotics is an awful one. Many times hospital and nursing home patients can pick this one up as it is transmitted from skin to skin contact. Hand washing is critical. However, if someone does get infected, it poses a challenge to treat and cure this infection.
