A research was done for the isolation and identification of undesirable microorganisms in food products using molecular approach the result revealed the presence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in various food products by means of miss handling during harvesting and storage. Many of these isolates were resistant or reduced susceptibilities to multiple antimicrobial agents.The resistant bacteria isolates were selected for 16S rRNA  identification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. 16S rRNA is a significant target to the molecular level identification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The results obtained were found to be a novel food borne pathogens, which were further named Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain HV17 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain HV77, after characterization the sequence of isolate was deposited in GenBank with accession numbers ‘KU982961’ and ‘KU982962’ respectively. 16S rRNA is the fundamental molecular method to identify organism Pseudomonas aeruginosa at strain level. Identified strain HV17 and HV77 and sequences will help for further research in the field of food borne pathogens.
