  The conventional method was used to isolate Escherichia coli from ducks and duck related samples. The samples were obtained from a wet market and two duck farms. The average occurrence of Escherichia coli was 78.00% and was highest in duck faeces (87.93%), followed by duck intestines (81.25%), soil (70.83%) and wash water (50.00%) samples. The prevalence in Farm B (90.45%) was higher than in Farm A (80.33%). The occurrence of Escherichia coli did not differ significantly (p>0.05) among the samples examined. In addition, most of the isolates belongs to the serotype O517 (82.44%) and biotype 1 (82.44%). The study indicates that ducks like other farm animals are primary reservoirs for Escherichia coli including potential pathogenic types and the opportunity for cross contamination and consequently foodborne poisoning or illness exists through the consumption of contaminated food.

  A total of Five Listeria-like strains were isolated from ducks and the environment in Penang, Malaysia between 2009 and 2010. These strains were small Gram-positive rods, utilize dextrose, esculin and maltose and fitted well into the description of Listeria spp. 16S ribosomal RNA sequence analysis confirmed a close phylogenetic similarity (99 bootstrap value) to Listeria sp. 102, Listeria fleischmannii LU2006-1 and Listeriaceaec bacterium TTU M1-001 and a more distant relationship to other Listeria spp. The five Listeria-like strains also harboured the virulence-associated gene, hlyA (haemolysin gene). Plasmid DNA band sizes ranged from 2.1-25 kb and were detected in all isolates. All the isolates were susceptible to ampicillin and nitrofurantoin, but resistant to cefotaxime nalidixic acid and tetracycline. Genotyping by amplified polymorphic deoxyribonucleic acid (RAPD), Enterobacterial Repetitive Intergenic Consensus (ERIC) and repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP) grouped the Listeria-like strains into four similar types at a coefficient of 0.63. This study draws attention to the emerging importance of foodborne pathogens and the need for monitoring changes in antibiotic resistance patterns so that efficient risk and control management strategies can be developed.

  Fish gelatin is an important alternative gelatin which can be considered as Halal and acceptable by all religions. It is made from fish by-products of which fish skin is the most widely used part. The collagen and gelatin-like property of fish bones and scales coupled with their readily availability make it a potential source for development into gelatin products. This review discusses the potentials for the development and utilization of fish bones and scales in the production of gelatins. It also looks at the raw materials, processes, properties and the improvement of fish gelatins for future commercial use.

  Serunding (shredded meat) is one of the traditional meat based-product popular among Malaysians. Eight commercial serunding prepared using beef, chicken and fish as raw material were collected from markets and analyzed to determine their chemical composition, colour and sensory characteristics. The results showed that moisture, fat and protein contents were within the range of 8.60-13.56, 3.20-31.14 and 19.86-30.15%, respectively. Serunding ayam or shredded chicken was the lightest in colour followed by serunding daging or shredded meat and serunding ikan or shredded fish. Sensory evaluation showed that panelists preferred shredded fish with darker colour. However there was no significant difference between the overall acceptability for shredded meat and chicken.
