Food Safety: Pre-slaughter Interventions Could Reduce E. coli (STEC) in Cattle
Lisa Shames (au)
Since 2006, the U.S. beef industry has recalled over 23 mill. pds. of beef due to contamination from pathogenic strains of STEC bacteria. These strains may contaminate meat during slaughter. If humans eat contaminated meat without properly cooking it, STEC can cause illnesses, incl. bloody diarrhea and kidney failure, which can be fatal. This report reviewed: (1) interventions before slaughter that may help reduce STEC in cattle; (2) USDAäó»s role in approving STEC vaccines; (3) the extent to which STEC strains have been determined to be adulterants in beef and the status of tests to detect them; and (4) practices other countries have employed that could reduce STEC in cattle and may be relevant to U.S. efforts.
