Enterococci, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is 'normally found in the human intestines, female genital tract and environment (e.g., soil and water)'. Heart patients and those with weakened immune systems are reportedly most at risk of developing symptoms when exposed to the fecal bacteria. Infections can be treated with antibiotics.
