A. Aslam, I. Mariam, I. Haq and S. Ali

Abstract

The present study describes the microbial examination of the samples of raw minced beef. Samples were tested for total viable count, mould and yeast count, sporeformers and coliforms. Bacterial count was highest in the raw minced beef as 319 × 103. Moulds were found present in all the samples while yeasts were found absent in all the samples. Among the sporeformers, aerobic sporeformers were found present in all the samples while anaerobic sporeformers were found absent in few samples. Coliforms were found present in all the samples. Fecal coliforms were found absent in few samples, while non-fecal coliforms were present in all the samples.
