A survey of beef carcasses was conducted in all 10 European community approved abattoirs in Northern Ireland to determine the incidence of Escherichia coli O157:H7. Analyses were based on excised samples of neck meat taken less than 48 h post-kill. Overall, 780 carcasses were sampled and all were negative for E. coli O157:H7. A sub-set of samples was analysed for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes (n = 200), Salmonella (n = 200) and Campylobacter spp.(n = 100). L. monocytogenes was not detected but Listeria innocua was found on five carcasses and Listeria seeligeri on one. Three carcasses carried salmonellas; Salmonella Mbandaka was found on two and Salmonella Thompson on one. Campylobacter spp. were not detected on any carcasses. The results indicate that very few beef carcasses in Northern Ireland appear to carry any of the four pathogens sought, and this may help explain the low incidence of E. coli O157:H7 in the Northern Ireland human population, relative to the rest of the UK.
