     Food-borne disease outbreak have imposed substantial burden on health care systems and have markedly reduced the economic productivity of a country. In developing countries like Nepal, farmers use antibiotics in feed for therapeutic as well as non-therapeutic purpose. This study aims to evaluate bacteriological status of raw chicken meat and their Antibiogram. A comparative study of 25 livers and 25 breast muscles was carried out using standard procedures for isolation and identification of E. coli, Salmonella and their Antibiogram. The prevalence of E. coli and Salmonella in chicken liver was found to be 52% and 36% respectively; and in case of chicken breast, it was 44% and 0% respectively. The isolates from liver showed wider resistance pattern towards in-use antibiotics in comparis.. View More»
