Cattle hides become contaminated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 via pathogen transmission in the feedlot, during transport, and while in the lairage environment at the processing facility, and the bacteria can be transferred to beef carcasses during processing. Several studies have shown that E. coli O157:H7 strains possessing indistinguishable restriction digest patterns (RDPs) can be isolated from distant locations. Most of these studies, however, examined RDPs from strains isolated within a… CONTINUE READING
