Beef Scraps Tested for Lesser-Known E. Coli

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The Food Safety and Inspection Service reports it will test raw beef scraps for six lesser-known toxin producing E. coli strains starting June 4.



     The FSIS already tests for the O157:H7 Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli strain responsible for the more well-known E. coli food poisoning outbreaks.
     The FSIS will announce later when it will begin routine testing for additional raw beef products, including ground beef, according to Thursday’s Federal Register posting.
