Abstract

The aim of the present study was to determine the antimicrobial resistance pattern of Bacillus cereus isolates from fried rice samples. A total of 35 isolates of B cereus from 70 samples of fried rice were tested for their identification by 16s rDNA test and test sensitivity to fourteen commonly used antibiotics. Antibiotic resistance analysis showed the B. cereus isolates were highly resistant to streptomycin 88% (31/35), ampicillin 88% (31/35) and tetracyclin 86% (30/35) followed by resistance towards vancomycin 63% (22/35), gentamcin 57%(20/35), penicillin G 54%, (19/35), nalidixic acid 51% (18/35), nitrofurantoin 48% (17/35), kanamycin 45% (16/35), erythromycin (42%, 15/35), ciprofloxacin 42% (15/35), ceftriaxone 37%(13/35) chloramphenicol 34% (12/35) and bactriacin 31% (11/35).
