Samples of minced mutton from (i) 2 retail shops and from (ii) the CFTRI training abattoir were studied; the microflora was investigated, together with the shelf-life at 30 and 40 degree C. Bacterial counts (total plate count, coliforms, Staphylococcus spp., enterococci, psychrotrophs) of (i) were 10-2-10-3x higher than those of (ii). The predominant genus in (i) samples was Staphylococcus, followed by Escherichia; the predominant genus in (ii) samples was Micrococcus, followed by Staphylococcus and Acinetobacter-like organisms. Shelf-life at 30 degree C was 4 h for (i) and 7 h for (ii) samples; corresponding values at 40 degree C were 2 h and 4 h, resp. The spoilage microflora of the meats is discussed.
