SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FSIS is evaluating the effectiveness of its 
policies and procedures in responding to findings that raw beef is 
positive for E. coli O157:H7, and whether the Agency takes the 
appropriate steps to identify source materials used to produce the 
product and to identify other products derived from those source 
materials. One conclusion reached by FSIS thus far is that the Agency 
must improve its procedures for assessing the conditions at suppliers 
that may have resulted in the positive product.
    FSIS has also concluded that it should conduct additional 
verification activities at suppliers that produced source materials for 
raw beef product that FSIS has found positive for E. coli O157:H7. 
Therefore, FSIS intends to issue new instructions to Enforcement, 
Investigations, and Analysis Officers (EIAOs) to conduct additional 
verification activities at suppliers in response to positive E. coli 
O157:H7 results. These instructions are intended to assist EIAOs is 
assessing conditions at the suppliers, including whether source 
materials used to produce the positive raw beef product may have been 
produced during high event periods. High event periods are production 
periods during which an establishment's sampling and testing program 
detects a series of positive test results that indicates a systemic 
failure or breakdown of process controls. If FSIS personnel determine 
that the subject source materials were produced during high event 
periods, the Agency may determine that additional product is implicated 
by the positive result. FSIS will issue these new instructions after 
the public meeting.
    At the meeting FSIS will discuss the Agency's E. coli O157:H7 test 
data, its current policies for responding to E. coli O157:H7 positives, 
the Agency's current thinking for improving those policies, and 
information regarding next steps. An opportunity for participants to 
comment will be provided as well.
