Determination Of Aflatoxin Levels In Stored White Maize (Zea Mays L.) And Flour In Kitui, Mwingi And Makueni Districts In Kenya

ABSTRACTAflatoxins are fungal metabolites which are toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic and thus cause undesirable effects on animal and human health when ingested with feed or foodstuffs. Aflatoxin producing fungi may occur in certain food products in form of spores, and thus when conditions are favourable, the fungi germinate and may produce aflatoxin in varied amounts. Ingestion of higher dose of aflatoxin (Codex Commission upper limit is 10ppb), may result in aflatoxicosis which manifests a...

Characterization Of Escherichia Coli Strains And Salmonella Enterica Serovars Isolated In Gallus Gallus And Their Antimicrobial Susceptibility

ABSTRACTIndigenous chicken production in most African countries including Kenya is traditionally based on free feed resources available in the surrounding environment. There is a high risk of zoonosis that could be an important source of enteric pathogens transmissible to humans. The apparently healthy chicken, like other food animals shed enteric pathogens, notably Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli that are associated with antimicrobial resistance. The purpose of this study was to charact...
