E.coli: Its origins and the battle to reduce/eliminate it

First published in 1997 but still pertinent today, the Institute of Food Technologists’ scientific status summary on E. coli O157:H7 describes the pathogen, its ability to infect, the inherent difficulties to inactivate it, and much more.

Titled Foodborne Disease Significance of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Other Enterohemorrhagic E. coli, the six-page document (plus references) and a one-page editorial is available to the public at www.ift.org.

Founded in 1939, and with world headquarters in Chicago, IFT is a not-for-profit international scientific society with 22,000 members working in food science, technology and related professions in industry, academia and government.
