FURLANETTO, Sirdeia Maura Perrone; LACERDA, Ananias Azevedo  y  CERQUEIRA-CAMPOS, Maria Lucia. Research into microrganisms in mayonnaise salad obtained in restaurants, snack bars and "rotisseries". Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1982, vol.16, n.6, pp.307-316. ISSN 1518-8787.

Twenty samples of mayonnaise salads obtained in restaurants, snack bars and "rotisseries" were analysed for total plate count of mesophilic and psichrophilic bacteria, yeasts and molds, enumeration and isolation of Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, the MPN of totally coliform bacteria, Escherichia coli and fecal streptococci as well as for investigation into the occurrence of Salmonella. It was found, in total counts, of coliform and streptococci, that numbers were high in many samples, showing the occurrence of contamination probably during the handling of the food. All the analysed samples were positive to total coliforms as well as to Escherichia coli and fecal streptococci showing that the food had, at some point, suffered pollution of fecal origi n. Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus in varying proportions were found in different samples. All the samples were showed to be negative for Salmonella.
