USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) will announce in this week's Federal Register its analysis of the estimated costs and benefits associated with the implementation of its non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) testing of beef manufacturing trimmings, and the costs and benefits associated with the potential expansion of its non-O157 STEC testing to include ground beef and ground beef components. This notice will also solicit public comments to determine whether or not FSIS will expand its non-O157 testing to include these additional products.
