    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study evaluated the production of dry fermented salami associated with an outbreak of Escherichia coli O157 : H7 infection in Washington State and California.

    Methods

    Facility inspections, review of plant monitoring data, food handler interviews, and microbiological testing of salami products were conducted.

    Results

    Production methods complied with federal requirements and industry-developed good manufactoring practices.

    No evidence suggested that postprocessing contamination occurred.

    Calculations suggested that the infectious dose was smaller than 50 E. coli O157H : H7 bacteria.

    Conclusions

    Dry fermented salami can serve as a vehicle of transmission for O157 : H7 strains.

    Our investigation and prior laboratory studies suggest that E. coli O157 : H7 can survive currently accepted processing methods.
