New approach to meat safety taken in MSU study of E. coli

The MSU News Service reported today on research being done at Montana State University. Researchers there have been studying the relationship between a strong immune system in calves and safer meat in the grocery store. The approach is a new one in the fight against E. coli.
Researchers use the cows to examine the contents of their rumen, the largest compartment in their stomachs. Focusing on early nutrition is a different approach from traditional efforts that concentrate on sanitation in packing plants to reduce the rate of E. coli shedding. Experts usually address post-harvest conditions rather than pre-harvest.
