Bacillus cereus

Bacillus cereus Testing

Bacillus cereus has ubiquitous distribution in the environment and can be isolated from a variety of processed and raw foods. However, its presence in foods is not a significant health threat unless it is able to grow. Consumption of food containing more than 105 viable cells / g has resulted in outbreaks of food borne illness. Foods frequently incriminated include: boiled and fried rice, cooked pasta, cooked meats, cooked vegetables, soups, salads, puddings and vegetable sprouts.
  • 50g minimum sample is recommended. Environmental surface samples can also be analyzed.
  • EMSL Test Code: F121
  • Sample retention time – 30 days, unless highly perishable
