Escherichia coli O157:H7 detection in fresh ground beef and hamburgers



Escherichia coli O157:H7 detection in fresh ground beef and hamburgers



Revista Argentina de Microbiologia 38(1): 38-40



Escherichia coli O157:H7 is an emergent pathogen associated with food transmitted diseases. In 1982, Escherichia coli 0157:H7 was for the first time identified as the cause of two haemorrhagic colitis outbreaks in the USA. It is now well known that most cases of haemolytic uraemic syndrome are caused by these bacteria. The objective of this work was to detect the microorganism in fresh ground beef and hamburgers.
