Four Escherichia coli isolates were obtained from a batch of cocoa beans imported from Bolivia. The cocoa beans were rejected by a U.S. chocolate manufacturer due to poor microbiological quality. The four isolates were whole-genome sequenced and the sequences analyzed to identify genotypes, serotypes, and virulence and antimicrobial resistance genes.
