The present study aimed to estimate the microbiological characteristics as well as the safety of traditionally fermented fish product, Kejeik. Kejeik samples were collected from Singah city (Blue Nile) and Kusti city (White Nile), Sudan. These samples were previously prepared from Ijl, Nawk and Garmut fish types. The microbiological analyses indicated that Kejeik products were devoid of any harmful bacteria like Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli O157:H7. The highest… Expand

Risk Profile and Semi Quantitative Risk Probability of Aflatoxin B1 from Aspergillus flavus in a Dried Salted Fish in Several Regions of Java
The results of this study showed that the consumption of salted fish was about 3.7 g/capita/day, so there are risks of 7.74 cfu/g A. flavus exposure and 0.7291 ppb aflatoxin B1 exposure in 1 g of a saltedFish taken from sampling locations, however this value is still categorized as low risk level.
