I wonder how predictive this test is versus individual animals fecal sample.

also, see

http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Science/Ground_Beef_E.coli_Testing_Results/index.asp

anyone have any idea what the remediation is?  can an animal be cleansed of E. Coli and be salvaged/slaughtered?  send these to irradiation.  give people a choice, especially for hamburger.  there's that dang word again, choice.

interesting that postive hits throughout the chain have actually gone down compared to the past even as sampling has increased.  interesting that import testing is low, but that may be that imports are low too.

also important that previous postitives may have been false positives.  also note that this is for 0157:H7, and not all E. coli.
