E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome


Fecal contamination found in unpasteurised milk samples

2nd February 2012

Following a periodical review of consumer health risks from unpasteurised milk and cream, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have maintained their recommendation that pasteurisation is an important control measure in reducing the risks from consumption of raw milk.

Microbiological data reviewed showed the presence of pathogenic microorganisms in some raw milk samples and indicators of faecal contamination present at varying levels in most samples analysed.

Whilst full results of the review are yet to be published, it is clear that the need for routine testing to detect pathogens such as E.coli as quickly and easily as possible will remain as important as ever.
