Industry Proactive on Pathogen Prevention
According to the FDA report, “To better control foodborne pathogens in animals and plants, prevention efforts should be implemented across the farm to table continuum.” USDA Secretary Mike Johanns explained, "These results demonstrate that through innovative policies and strong and consistent enforcement of inspection laws, we are protecting the public's health through a safer food supply."
Reasons for such significant declines in foodborne illnesses were linked to several factors. In 2002 the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service established new recommendations for combating E. coli O157 in ground beef and Listeria in prepared foods. Most establishments responded with enhanced food safety systems, adding new food safety technology and increasing testing. These changes also are believed secondary to industry endeavors to reduce E. coli O157 in cattle and slaughtering.
