Total coliforms were found in 30% (3/10) of the samples evaluated, with values ​​ranging from <3.0 to> 1100 NMP / g and the presence of thermotolerant coliforms in 10% (1/10) with a value greater than > 1100 NMP / g. The count of mesophilic bacteria varied from 3.17 to 6.23 (Log10 UFC/g). While the mold and yeast count between 3.69 to 5.55 (Log10 UFC/g). Regarding the analyzes of Salmonella ssp., Escherichia coli and pathogenic parasites were negative. The results allowed to conclude that, of the total of ten samples analyzed, 10% (1/10) was unfit for human consumption.
