ABSTRACT

Bacteriological examination of abattoir site at Mami market in Abakpa, Enugu State of Nigeria was carried out. Samples from table, dung, knife, skin and carcass were collected with the aid of a sterile swab stick. Total of 50 samples were examined for bacterial isolates using spread plate method on nutrient agar and MacConky agar. After 24h of incubation at 37oC, the isolation frequency showed that Staphylococcus spp, Escherichia spp and Bacillus spp were more frequently isolated, followed by Pseudomonas spp. The isolates obtained from the results had an average of 147cfu for Table, 165cfu for Dung, 92cfu for Knife, 89cfu for Carcass and 148cfu for skin. Proper hygiene and management in our abattoir is highly recommended in order to prevent bacterial contamination.
