Ice machines and other food service equipment provide the ideal
environment for biological pollution to thrive. Slime, mold, bacteria,
biofilm and yeast are often sources of contamination in ice
machines and bins. Common bacteria and viruses known to
contaminate ice cubes include: Salmonella, Shigella, Noroviru, E. coli,
Typhoid Fever, Hepatitis A, Cholera, Mycobacterium and Legionella.
