Keywords:Marketable milk, Campylobacter spp. , C. coli., C. jejuni
The current study aimed to determine the prevalence of Campylobacter in milk and milk products as well as the determination of isolated Campylobacter in Egypt's New Valley Governorate. 150 random samples of marketable milk (dairy farm and dairy shop) and some milk products: soft cheeses (Kareish, Domiati) and Ice cream (30 for each) were obtained from various locations in the New Valley Governorate. Campylobacter spp. were found in 6.6% of marketable milk from dairy farms. In addition, Campylobacter spp. were found in 3.3% of soft cheese samples (Kareish cheese). while they couldn't be detected in Domiati cheese samples. Moreover, Campylobacter spp. were found in 10% of ice cream samples. Campylobacter organisms were identified as C. coli (2%) and C. jejuni (2%) in marketable milk (dairy farm and dairy shop) and some milk products. In conclusion, Campylobacter species is detected in some milk and some milk products in New Valley governorate. So, restricted milk hygiene must be applied during milking, manufacturing, and marketing milk and its products.
