Abstract:

Diseases that result from foods are one of the major health problems in developing and developed countries. The determination of the microbiological quality of foods needs to be established by analytical protocols to detect indicator and pathogenic organisms. Commonly approved indices of microbial quality include the Total Viable Count (TVC) and Coliform count. Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC), food-borne pathogens of public health concern and responsible for both outbreaks and sporadic cases of human diseases, ranging from mild diarrhea to hemorrhagic colitis (HC) and life-threatening hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) leading to kidney failure and death.
