Alcaligenes faecalis exists in the alimentary canal, but systemic infections with the microbe do not occur in the majority of healthy humans. Infections caused by A. faecalis have been observed in humans with compromised immune systems and uncompromised immune systems.
Alcaligenes faecalis is the most frequently isolated species of Alcaligenes. This organism has been recovered from blood, sputum, feces, purulent ear discharges, spinal fluid, wounds and urine specimens. It has been associated with nosocomially acquired septicemia and pyrexic reactions without septicemia.
Type species: Alcaligenes faecalis Castellani and Chalmers 1919, 936 AL (Achromobacter arsenoxydanstres Turner 1954, 475; Pseudomonas odorans (Mlek and KazdovKoiskova 1946; Mlek, Radochov and Lysenko 1963, 353; Alcaligenes odorans var. viridans Mitchell and Clarke 1965, 347. The eighth edition of Bergeys Manual of Determinative Bacteriology (Buchanan and Gibbons, 1974) lists the genus Alcaligenes under Genera of Uncertain Affiliation.
Although Alcaligenes faecalis was first isolated from stale beer by Petruschky (1889) and subsequently described by many others, its taxonomy is still uncertain and controversial.

DNADNA hybridizations between the five strains and related Alcaligenes faecalis strains confirmed that the former belong to a single and novel species within the genus In Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, vol. 1, Genus: Achromobacter (formerly Alcaligenes) Species: Achromobacter xylosoxidans.
Background. After it was discovered the only difference between the Alcaligenes and Achromobacter motile strains was the reaction in litmus milk, the genus name Alcaligenes was changed to Achromobacter.
