​​A targeted survey on bacterial pathogens in mechanically tenderized beef steaks analyzed 975 samples for E. coli O157:H7 and generic E. coli. Of the 975 samples, 386 samples were also tested for non-O157 Verotoxigenic E. coli (non-O157 VTEC). No E. coli O157:H7 and non-O157 VTEC were found in any of the samples. Generic E. coli was found in 3 samples. CFIA conducted appropriate follow-up activities. No illnesses were reported in association with any of the positive samples.
