On the other hand, 23 samples were found positive for Salmonella spp, and the prevalence of Salmonella spp in this study was 49.91 %. 29.16% of thigh samples were positive for Salmonella spp within 24 tested samples whereas 66.66% of litter samples were positive within 24 tested samples for this bacteria. Total Viable Count (TVC), Total Coliform Count (TCC), Total Salmonella Count (TSC), and Total Campylobacter Count (CPC) in meat samples of different broiler markets like Nirala market at Khulna city corporation, Dumuria, and Fultola were determined.
