    Food contamination, either from microbiological or chemical, is the highest concern for public health. The dairy products such as cheese have an essential role in human nutrition but have been linked with outbreaks of foodborne illness. The cheese production process contains the steps that might be the reasons of bacterial pathogens contamination. The primarily purpose of this study was to detect the microbiological quality and Lactic Acid flora of cheeses at retail sale in bazaars of Bayramiç, Ezine and Kepez (towns of Çanakkale) which were produced at home or small dairies. The presence of Total Mesophilic Aerobic Bacteria (TMAB), Total Psychrophilic Aerobic Bacteria (TPAB), yeast and moulds, coliform bacteria, coagulase positive Staphylococcus spp., and Escherichia coli O157:H7 (EHEC) were investigated. The mean TMAB counts were assessed as 3.63 &tim.. View More»
