Raoultella planticola is a Gram-negative bacterium of the genus Raoultella.[5][10][11][12][13][14][15] A number of strains have been identified.[16][17] Raoultella planticola has been determined to have complicated at least one case of severe pancreatitis.[18]

The development of a genetically modified version of this bacterium that produces alcohol has been a source of controversy.[19] Some people believe the alcohol-producing strain has the potential to kill many or all terrestrial plant species and this is sometimes cited as an example of the dangers of genetically modified organisms.[20]

Taxonomic reclassification[edit]

Raoultella planticola was classified formerly as part of the genus Klebsiella. It was reclassified along with several other Klebsiella species in 2001.[21]
