Abstract: Twenty four random samples of raw cow milk were collected from Khartoum and Omdurman Cities. Samples were analyzed for microbiological population, included Total Plate Count (TPC), Total Coliforms (TC), Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) and spore forming bacteria. Microbiological enumeration revealed for the counts of total mesophilic aerobic bacteria, 5.86 log cfu/ml; lactic acid bacteria, 4.47 log cfu/ml; coliforms 2.76 log cfu/ml; E. coli 1.63 log cfu/ml; Staphylococcus aureus, 1.92 log cfu/ml and 2.38 log cfu/ml Spore forming bacteria. The microbial profiles found had non-conformance to the Standard. Based on the exceedingly high microbial counts found in this study, it could be concluded that this milk type poses a serious health risk in the study areas.
