Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 causes foodborne infections, and cattle are the primary reservoir. Some animals, known as supershedders, excrete orders of magnitude more E. coli O157:H7 in the feces than normal. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of the SS52 supershedder strain of E. coli O157:H7.
