Together, we can reduce E. coli O157.
Everyone benefits from the
Escherichia Coli Bacterial
* with SRP®
technology. It allows
- Reduce E. coli O157 at the source — in cattle
- Reduce fecal shedding, which can reduce environmental contamination
- Add an important additional barrier, reducing the pathogen
burden before the processing plant
- Have less E. coli O157 at the processing plant,
which can make existing interventions more effective
Why should I be concerned about
E. coli O157 in beef?
Everyone in the beef supply chain is in this together, fighting a common
enemy that can threaten the well-being of our customers and the livelihood
of every person connected with our business. Together, we can reduce
the threat of E. coli
O157 contamination in beef.
Preharvest intervention adds another barrier of protection.
Post-harvest interventions within processing plants, such
as steam pasteurization and hot water washes, are designed to
help prevent E. coli O157 from reaching the consumer.
When the incoming pathogen burden overwhelms the in-plant
interventions, the system can potentially fail.
Preharvest intervention adds another barrier, to help reduce the
pathogen burden before it enters the processor and to help decrease
environmental contamination at the feedlot.
