Abstract

OCCURRENCE OF THE MICROBIAL POLLUTANTS IN CONTAMINATED CANNED FOODS

A. Blessy Shajahan and S. Ahmed John*

ABSTRACT

The two different contaminated canned foods (milk and meat) samples were collected from the Tiruchirappalli general market during October 2015 for microbiological analysis. The 1 ml of milk and 1 g of meat contaminated canned foods were mixed in peptone waters and were inoculated into the selective medium by spared plate method. The mean level of TVC, TCC, TSTC, TPC, TBC, TSYC, TSSC and TKC counts in canned milk sample were 12.4 x 102, 3.4 x 102, 1.1 x 102, 0.84 x 102, 2.7 x 102, To low too count (TLTC), 0.72 x 102, 0.57 x 102, respectively. But, the mean level of Total viable count (TVC), Total coliforms count (TCC), Total Streptococci count (TSTC), Total Pseudomonas count (TPC), Total Bacillus count (TBC), Total Staphylococcus count (TSYC), Total Salmonella and Shigella count (TSSC) and Total Klebsiella count (TKC) counts in canned meat sample were 11.4 x 103, 7.8 x 102, 3.1 x 102, 1.4 x 102, 4.3 x 102, 0.98 x 102, 1.2 x 102, 0.81 x 102, respectively. The microbial load was high in meat food product than the milk product. The microbial load was high in meat food product than the milk product due to the nutrient richness and that can be support the growth of microorganisms. Among the bacterial parameters, total coliforms and Bacillus counts were high in both the samples while low level of Staphylococcus was observed. Hence, this study recommended that the canned food materials were analyzed at each stage of food processing.

Keywords: Canned food, Bacterial analysis, Milk products, Meat products, Bacillus sp.
