2016 - STEC Workshops Online RegistrationShiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli are a major concern as a cause of foodborne illness and are considered an adulterant in ground beef and non-intact beef products. According to the CDC, there are approximately 265,000 cases attributed to them annually. Understanding and process controls are key for beef processors. This workshop will address the following objectives to reduce the risk of STEC in beef products:
- Increase participant understanding of E. coli O157:H7 and other non-O157 STECs (Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli) in beef and the risk of foodborne illness.
- Explore process control systems for E. coli O157:H7 and non-O157 STEC using HACCP and other Food Safety Management Systems.
- Understand antimicrobial interventions, their effectiveness for reducing the population of STECs and their impact on quality of non-intact beef products.
