oa South African Medical Journal - Hygienic evaluation of biltong
Of 121 samples of biltong collected in Johannesburg, 0ï¿½8% yielded a growth of salmonella and 28ï¿½1 % a growth of Escherichia coli, type 1 (faecal). Staphylococcus epidermidis was isolated from many samples, but none yielded a growth of Staphylococcus aureus. Hygienically, biltong, in its present form, is unsatisfactory.
