​​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.

A targeted survey analyzed 4,710 samples of mangoes and papayas for bacterial pathogens such as Salmonella, Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7, Shigella, and generic E. coli. All mango samples (100%) and over 99% of the papaya samples were satisfactory. E. coli O157:H7 and Shigella were not found on any samples tested. Salmonella was found on the surface of two papaya samples and seven papaya samples had high levels of generic E. coli.
