AbstractFifty raw milk samples were collected , (25) of them were collected from the individual milk cans (50 kg each) from the producer’s homes in Al-Thahab Al-Abiad, Abu Ghraib, while the other (25)samples were collected from the scale bulk milk tank (2 tons) inside the milk reception and collecting center at the same village.
Data revealed that (8%) of the milk samples collected from the milk cans while (16%) of the milk samples collected from the scale bulk milk tank were contaminated with Salmonella spp.
Result revealed that a significant positive correlation was found between the milk samples with a high coliform counts and the existence of Salmonella in them among the tow serotype of Salmonella that were identified from (50) raw milk samples including S- typhimurium and S-dublin.
