Spotlight on Microorganisms Testing for the Meat Industry

  • Rendering of e. Coli bacterium
    E. coli

    Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative, coliform bacteria that is one of the most common species found in human digestive systems. Certain types of E. coli bacteria are known to cause severe food poisoning upon consumption of contaminated food. One of these, Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC), produce a potent toxin called Shiga toxin (Stx). The most common STEC serotype, O157:H7, causes more than 75% of E. coli infections worldwide.

  • Rendering of Listeria bacterium
    Listeria

    Listeria monocytogenes, a Gram-positive bacterium, is often found in moist conditions, including soil, surface water and decaying vegetation. Listeria monocytogenes is the most infamous of the 17 known species in the Listeria genus.

  • Rendering of Salmonella bacterium
    Salmonella

    Salmonella is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that is one of several organisms in the Enterobacteriaceae family. Salmonella is the most commonly reported cause of foodborne illness today, making it one of the most important tests for food processors.
