Sobeih AMK, Al-Hawary II, Khalifa EMI, El-Wahab Ebied NAA,, A Survey of enterobacteria in dairy products. Onl J Vet Res., 25 (5): 364-369, 2021. We report survey for Enterobacteria in 100 raw milk and 50 yoghurt and ice cream samples from Kafr El Sheikh, Egypt. In raw milk we found 84% with 1.02x106 + 1.98x105 cfu/g, in yoghurt 32-40% with 6.95x103 + 4x103 and 1.57x103 + 8.95x102 cfu/g and ice cream 20-64% with 1.02x104 + 4.13x103 and 1.4x103 + 8.26x102 cfu/g. Most frequent in raw milk were Hafnia alive ~31% and Serratia liquefaciens 25%, in yogurt E. coil in 44.44% and in ice cream Serratia marcescens 57.14%. We find that raw dairy products from these localities may be unsafe and suggesting fecal contamination by enteric pathogens.
