  1. aMice 1–4 were non-treated with probiotic lactic acid bacteria. Mice 5–8 were orally challenged with 1 × 108 CFU probiotic bacteria mixture. Seven days later, all mice were orally challenged with 1 × 108 CFU/mL S. enterica. bThe number of S. enterica isolated from feces of mice 7 days after challenge were enumerated on SS agar plates. cThe numbers of lactic acid bacteria were enumerated on MRS agar plates and reported as CFU/g feces 7 days after S. enterica challenge
