Vinay Kumar Singh, Sangeeta Shukla and Anil Chaturvedi
Among 200 selected dairy samples 50 each of pasteurized milk, cream, butter and paneer were analyzed for the presence of Bacillus cereus the paneer samples were found to have the highest incidence of Bacillus cereus (52.94%) followed by cream sample (29.41%) and pasteurized milk sample (17.64%) however none of the butter samples were found to be contaminated with Bacillus cereus. These isolates were found to be gram positive bacilli with spores, they were found to ferment sucrose, glucose, dextrose; they gave the positive result for NO3 reduction, oxidize, catalase, and for starch hydrolysis.
