In this study, the performance of two new chromogenic plating media (CBC and BCM) was compared with two standard selective plating media (PEMBA and MYP) recommended by food authorities for isolation, identification and enumeration of Bacillus cereus. The four media types were challenged with a strain set comprising 100 B. cereus isolates from different origins and with different toxigenic potentials (40 food isolates, 40 isolates from food borne outbreaks and 20 clinical isolates).
