While these bacteria do not typically pose a risk to healthy individuals, Klebsiella oxytoca can cause illness such as infection of the lower intestine, cramps and watery, bloody diarrhea, lung infections and urinary tract infections in individuals with a compromised immune system. It may also cause infections of the skin, soft tissues, organs, or blood poisoning if introduced into a wound.
