Japan may ban raw liver over E. coli

Japan’s Heath Ministry says the detection of E. Coli in beef liver may result in the banning of raw liver from the country’s dining menus.

Live E. coli was detected in the livers of two of about 150 cattle it examined at meat inspection centers nationwide since summer.

Restaurants had already been asked by the government to refrain from serving raw beef liver while the ministry conducted the examinations.
