Conference Description:

Why Should You Attend:

Recently a further strain of EHEC, E. coli O26, has been classed as an adulterant with consideration of other strains being added to the list.

Pathogenic E. coli can be categorized into 6 main groups with Enterohaemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC), such as the O157:H7 strain being the most significant. There are 73,000 cases of E. coli O157:H7 reported annually within the US each year. E. coli O157:H7 was identified as a food-borne pathogen in 1982 and since this time further EHEC strains have been implicated in food-borne illness. Previously, only E. coli O157:H7 was classed as an adulterant which essentially means that if the strain is found, the food product must be recalled then destroyed or diverted for further processing. The presence of E. coli O157:H7 in ground beef has led to some of the largest recalls in history and hence places a large financial burden on the industry.
