Farming and Slaughterhouse Practices to Reduce Meat-Borne Disease

JAMA. 2003;290(24):3193-3194. doi:10.1001/jama.290.24.3193-a

To the Editor: In his Editorial about Shiga toxin-mediated hemolytic uremic syndrome, Dr Siegler1 stated that "A multifaceted approach is required that includes novel ways of decreasing the EHEC (enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli) carrier rate in livestock." I believe there are 2 additional measures that would decrease the carrier rate of EHEC as well as risk of other meat-borne diseases.
