A targeted survey on bacterial pathogens in fresh leafy vegetables analyzed 5,508 samples for Salmonella, Shigella, non-O157 Verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (non-O157 VTEC), Verotoxigenic Escherichia coli O157 (E. coli O157), and generic Escherichia coli (E. coli). No Salmonella, Shigella, and E. coli O157 were found in any of the samples. Non-O157 VTEC was found in 1 sample and elevated levels of generic E. coli were found in 25 samples. The CFIA conducted appropriate follow-up activities resulting in facility inspections and/or additional sampling.A targeted survey analysed 483 samples of fresh mushrooms for the presence of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) from the following enteric parasites of concern: Cyclospora cayetanensis, Cryptosporidium species, Toxoplasma gondii, and Giardia species.
