Abstract

The qualitative and quantitative contamination levels of Campylobacter spp. in frozen commercial chicken livers were assessed. From the 126 samples studied, 117 (92.9%) were positive for Campylobacter spp. C. coli was isolated more frequently (78.6%) than C. jejuni (21.4%). The MPN method showed that Campylobacter contamination levels ranged from 10 to > 230 bacteria/100 ml of liquid exuded by livers.
