literary masterpiece:
>Any ideas as to how remediate this situation?

Screen colonies by colony PCR using M13 forward and Reverse primers.

Toothpick colony into 20ul water, swirl and grid on fresh plate using 
same toothpick. Heat kill 100C for 5mins then use 1ul into a PCR. 

No PCR product, assuming controls work, means no plasmid in those cells.

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.
