Could Simple pH Test Detect Foodborne Pathogens?

Could that omnipresent tool of high school chemistry labs—litmus paper, which indicates if a liquid solution is acidic or basic—be harnessed as perhaps the simplest assay yet for foodborne pathogens? Researchers were able to correlate levels of E. coli bacteria with pH values represented by the changing color of the litmus paper.
