They usually are a part of the normal processing-line microflora. The routine testing for foodborne pathogenic bacteria is not recommended since most samples would be negative for infectious organisms and would yield only low populations of toxigenic species. 3. Microscopic mold counts (Howard, rot fragment, and G. candidum) can be useful for assessing the wholesomeness of raw fruits and vegetables and the sanitary status of cannery lines. However, additional research to relate modern processing conditions to the levels of filaments is recommended.
