Human infection with Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli OH7 (STEC O) is relatively rare, but the consequences can be serious, especially in the very young and the elderly. Efforts to control the flow of STEC O during beef processing have meaningfully reduced the incidence of human STEC O infection, particularly prior to 1. Introduction. Beef carcass contamination with Escherichia coli OH7 has been the subject of research and intervention development for over twenty years. During that time great strides have been made in minimizing the transfer of pathogenic organisms, found on or in animals as they enter the processing plant, to the carcass and subsequently the finished ://
Dairycattle havebeenidentified as areservoirforE. coli H7 (11, 21, 24). Dairy calves apparently harbor the organismmostfrequently (25). E. coli hasbeenreported to colonize the cecae ofchickens (2). Considering that E. coli H7 has been isolated from retail samples of pork, lamb, and chicken meats, it is possible that swine, sheep, Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a normal inhabitant of the human gastrointestinal tract. The H7 strain of E. coli, however, is responsible for the illness known as hamburger disease. As few as 10 viable E. coli OH7 can cause ://
Escherichia coli OH7 is an enteric pathogen of humans that causes a spectrum of illnesses, including hemorrhagic colitis and renal failure, and can be fatal (14, 24, 29).Domestic cattle are an important reservoir of this pathogen and are the source for most food-borne infections ().Experimental and field studies of E. coli OH7 in beef and dairy cattle have found within-group variation WHAT IS ESCHERICHIA COLI (E. COLI) H7 AND OTHER STECS? E. coli OH7 is a member of the enterohemorrhagic E. coli group. These Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) are responsible for the majority of very serious, food-related E. coli infections that cause severe damage to

Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) strains, of which E. coli OH7 is the best-studied serotype, are an important group of foodborne pathogens causing severe illness in humans worldwide. The main reservoirs for EHEC are ruminants, mostly cattle, which harbor the bacteria in their intestinal tracts without showing clinical :// Disease in humans caused by Escherichia coli OH7 is primarily transmitted by the food-borne route ().In recent years, however, outbreaks associated with animal exhibits have been reported with increasing frequency (2, 4, 6, 13, 19, 20, 22, 23, 27, 28).The environments of domestic ruminants may be an important reservoir for E.

Escherichia coli OH7 (ECO) usually causes uncomplicated diarrhoea, but occasionally, it is responsible for causing severe forms of illness including haemorrhagic colitis, and potentially lethal haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) in humans [1, 2].Cattle are the main hosts for ECO [3, 4].Humans can become exposed to ECO through direct contact with an infected Escherichia coli OH7 has a very low infectious dose, of only ∼50 CFU (Lim, Yoon and Hovde ).
Escherichia coli OH7-caused human illness can exhibit a variety of clinical manifestations. Some infected individuals may remain asymptomatic, while others can present intestinal and extraintestinal manifestations of varying degrees of a Oneisolate ofE. coli NM. b ND,Nottested. from cattle on four of nine farms and from a raw beef specimen that could have originated fromanimals onthose farms; E.

The prevalence of Escherichia coli OH7 in dairy herds is poorly understood, even though young dairy animals have been reported to be a host.

Although the prevalence of E. coli OH7 in cattle and other species with which humans have frequent contact is high, human infections are relatively uncommon, despite Escherichia coli (E. coli), is a ubiquitous bacteria in our environment, but a specific strain, H7, can cause serious human illness and even death.
It has been estimated that 89% of ground beef patties in the United States contain E. coli H7 (USA Today 3/2/). Contamination by E. coli takes place in the slaughterhouse when Escherichia coli OH7 is only occasionally isolated from healthy swine, but some experimentally infected animals will shed the organism in their feces for at least 2 months.
Potential explanations for the paucity of naturally occurring infections in swine, as compared to cattle, include a lack of animal-to-animal transmission so that the organism cannot be maintained within a herd, a high.
