ABSTRACT
In recent years food safety has been encouraged at the primary production stage through advice and mandated during food processing by legislation. On the farm, several pre-harvest interventions such as competitive inhibition, reduction in hide soiling, vaccination as well as diet manure and slurry management have been explored to control pathogens like Escherichia coli O157. During slaughter chemical dehairing, hide decontamination and carcass decontamination activities have been researched. The objective of this paper is to present an short review of these suggested controls in a risk management framework with E. coli O157 as the target pathogen.
