UK Guidelines on E coli 0157 contamination

September 12, 2016 at 5:17 PM

The UK Food Standards Agency has published guidelines on control of cross contamination, with a focus on E coli 0157.  The guidelines arose from the  serious outbreaks of E.coli O157 in Scotland in 1996 and Wales in 2005, which were attributed to cross-contamination arising from poor handling of food.

Although E.coli is the key focus of this guidance, the measures outlined will also help in the control of other bacteria, such as campylobacter and salmonella.
