Prevalence and characterization of Enterococcus spp isolated from Brazilian foods

, : Prevalence and characterization of Enterococcus spp isolated from Brazilian foods. Food Microbiology: 5, 668-675

Enterococci can be used in the food industry as starter or probiotic cultures. However, enterococci are also implicated in severe multi-resistant nosocomial infections. In this study, the prevalence of enterococci in selected Brazilian foodstuffs (raw and pasteurized milk, meat products, cheeses and vegetables) was evaluated. Phenotypic and PCR protocols were used for species identification.
