Clostridium perfringens type E is a less frequently isolated C. perfringens type and has not previously been reported in France. We have characterized two recent type E isolates, C. perfringens 508.17 from the intestinal content of a calf that died of enterotoxemia, and 515.17 from the stool of a 60-year-old woman, subsequent to food poisoning, which contained the plasmid pCPPB-1 with variant iota toxin and C. perfringens enterotoxin genes.
