I believe the utility you are looking for is mcelog.  We usually run  
it with the following arguments:
/usr/sbin/mcelog -h --ignorenodev --filter

I think it clears the info after it reports it, so make sure to tee it  
to a file.  I don't understand the command or the flags, just a copy /  
paste script kiddy in these regards, but I hope it helps.
