These data are the sampling results of FSIS’ routine RTE sampling programs. FSIS collects RTE samples
both randomly (RTEPROD_RAND) and using a risk based algorithm (RTEPROD_RISK). Additional
information can be found on the FSIS website.
Each row in this data set represents one sample collected and sent to an FSIS laboratory for analysis.
Each sample is analyzed for both Lm and Salmonella Species.
