Table 1 shows the test that will be applied and the permitted result.
Table 1, Test applied and permitted result
|Test applied||Permitted result|
|Salmonella||n=10, c=0, m=not detected in 25 g|
n = the number of samples to be analysed from a lot of food.
c = the maximum number of sample units that can be greater than ‘m’.
m = the acceptable microbiological level in a sample unit.
