2009). Various types of cattle feedstuffs have been shown to reduce O157:H7 shedding; however, the results are inconsistent and often not reproducible. , 2009). So far, feeding studies in attempts to reduce STEC shedding in cattle have not provided reliable means of STEC control. Besides feeding studies, other interventions have been suggested as a means of reducing the colonization and shedding of STEC in cattle before slaughter. A US Government Accountability Office report (GAO, 2012) suggested that interventions such as antimicrobial compounds, bacteriophages, colicins, natural product extracts, prebiotics, probiotics, sodium chlorate, and vaccines could be used to reduce STEC shedding.
