Abstract:
To study the microbiological quality of chicken sold in and around Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation by estimating i.e Total viable count, Total coliform count, Feacal coliform count, and yeast and mould counts. Samples collected from three different sources i.e Large scale processing centers, Hygienically maintained chicken shops and Road side vendors of 150 samples each source 100g quantity, packed in self-sealed sterilized polyethylene bags with appropriate labeling. The samples were kept at refrigeration temperature till further analysis. The mean Total viable counts in the chicken samples from Large scale processing centers, Road side slaughtering stalls, Hygienically maintained chicken shops were 4.43x105±0.38x105 CFU/gm, 6.53x106±0.86x106 CFU/gm and 3.86x107+1.08x107 CFU/gm respectively. The mean Total Coliform counts in the chicken samples from Large scale processing centers, Road side slaughtering stalls, Hygienically maintained chicken shops were 2.18x104±0.46x104 CFU/gm, 8.93x104±0.41x104 CFU/gm and 5.68x105+0.36x105 CFU/gm respectively. The mean faecal Coliform counts in the chicken samples from Large scale processing centers, Road side slaughtering stalls, Hygienically maintained chicken shops were 9.86x103±0.41x103 CFU/gm, 1.28x104±0.49x104 CFU/gm and 2.38x105+0.47x105 CFU/gm respectively. The mean Yeast and Mould count is in the chicken samples from Large scale processing centers, Road side slaughtering stalls, Hygienically maintained chicken shops were 1.36x103±0.38x103 CFU/gm, 3.86x104±0.45x104 CFU/gm and 4.38x105+0.50x105 CFU/gm respectively. Chicken may be purchased from the large scale and hygienically maintained chicken shops as the microbial counts are low and awareness created not to purchase the chicken from road side slaughter stalls to avoid public health hazards.
