A Critical Examination of the "Spoilage Bacteria Test" for Post-Pasterisation Contamination of Milk

Authors: P.G. Meiklejohn

Abstract:

Samples of raw milk frequently contain comparatively large populations of thermoduric bacteria able to grow on penicillin-TTC agar. These bacteria are largely micrococci, and cannot be classified as spoilage bacteria.

The count of penicillin-resistant organisms (P.RO.) of the test sample will be of value as an index of plant hygiene only when the thermoduric P.R.O. count of the original raw milk is known for comparison.
