Abstract:

Salmonellosisis one of the most commonly reported food borne disease all over the world and developing countries. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of Salmonella spp. in raw milk. Isolation and identification of Salmonella was carried out using real time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technique and sensitivity tests were done by the Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method. Total of 70 raw milk samples were collected from the 5 different dairy farms. The prevalence of Salmonella spp. in raw milk of the study area was 8.57%. This study reveals that collected Salmonella spp. were susceptible to antibiotics and also heat sensitive at pasteurization process which ensures the safety of pasteurized milk against Salmonella spp.


Keywords: Raw milk, Salmonellosis, RT-PCR, Antibiotic susceptibility and pasteurization
