Why Test for E. coli O157?
E. coli is one of the most commonly recognized bacterial species—but why test for it only E. coli O157? Although most strains of E. coli are innocuous—and often even beneficial—to daily human life, some strains (such as O157, including the H7 strain) are highly pathogenic to human, particularly the elderly, young, and those with compromised immune systems. What's more, these incredibly dangerous strains of E. coli can be found in a wide range of food products, including grains, eggs, product, fruits, dairy, and meats. And because only a small fraction of the E. coli strains are dangerous, testing must be targeted toward only those dangerous strains.
