Organization working to reduce instances of E. coli

From farm to fork.

This term has become recently popular when talking about the production process involved in animal agriculture.

In the beef industry, food safety is of particular importance. One particular pathogen, E. coli 0157:H7, often throws a wrench in the whole process--deeming recalls and alerts.
