  author={Ngozi Amaeze and Mercy Itohan Aboh and Felix Ehiocha Amiohu and T Olatunji and Peters O. Oladosu},
Aim: This study was aimed at determining the prevalence, antibiotic resistance and heat resistance profile of bacterial isolates obtained from ready to eat roasted beef (suya) sold in Abuja, Nigeria. Methods and Results: Fifty samples of suya were purchased from different vendors within the Federal Capital Territory and assessed for total viable bacterial counts. The sensitivity of the identified bacterial isolates to conventional antibiotics was evaluated using the disc diffusion method…

Prevalence of multi-drug resistant bacteria associated with foods and drinks in Nigeria (2015-2020): A systematic review
Public health personnel need to ensure critical control during the production and handling of foods and drinks, as well as create more awareness on proper hygienic practices to combat the spread of MDR bacteria becoming a growing food safety issue.


Characterization of Multiple-Antimicrobial-Resistant Salmonella Serovars Isolated from Retail Meats
The data indicate that Salmonella isolates recovered from retail raw meats are commonly resistant to multiple antimicrobials, including those used for treating salmonellosis, such as ceftriaxone.
Thermal Resistance of Local Isolates of Staphylococcus aureus
It is validated that heating commonly applied in cooking of RTE traditional food could reduce Staphylococcus aureus to up to 6.06˚C, which was within the range of reported Z values for most non-spore forming bacteria (4-6 o C).

Bacterial quality of a smoked meat product (“Suya”)
The bacteriological quality of “suya” sold within Makurdi metropolis was determined and there was significant difference of bacterial contamination among samples from the different locations using Tukey\'s LSD multiple comparison test.
The survival and growth of Bacillus cereus in boiled and fried rice in relation to outbreaks of food poisoning
It is suggested that rice should be boiled in smaller quantities on several occasions during the day, thereby reducing the storage time before frying, and boiled or fried rice must not be stored under warm conditions especially in the range 15-50 degrees C.
District Laboratory Practice in Tropical Countries
The clinical and laboratory features of micro-organisms, including functions of blood, haematopoiesis and blood disorders, and their classification and features and classification are summarized.
Heat-induced temperature sensitivity of outgrowing Bacillus cereus spores
Microscopic evaluation of spores outgrowing at 45 degrees C revealed that when inactivation occurred, outgrowth halted at the swelling stage, and inhibition of protein synthesis by chloramphenicol at the optimum temperature also stopped outgrowth at swelling; thus protein synthesis may play a role in the 45 degree C inactivation mechanism.
Determination of thermobacteriological parameters and size of Bacillus stearothermophilus ATCC 7953 spores
Os resultados confirmam a elevada resistencia termica do esporo e indicam that este e um bom indicador biologico para avaliacao do processo de extrusao como esterilizante of alimentos.
