Bacteriological Survey of Raw Beef Patties Produced at Establishments Under Federal Inspection

By Bernard F. Surkiewicz, Marshall E. Harris, R. Paul Elliott, Joseph F. Macaluso and Michael M. Strand


At the time of manufacture, 76% of 74 sets of raw beef patties collected in 42 federally inspected establishments had aerobic plate counts of 1,000,000 or fewer/g; 84% contained 100 or fewer coliforms/g; 92% contained 100 or fewer Escherichia coli/g; and 85% contained 100 or fewer Staphylococcus aureus/g (geometric means of 10 patties/set). Salmonellae were isolated from only three (0.4%) of 735 beef patties
