We are consistently getting Enterobacteriaceae Positive but <10 in whey protein powder. The method the lab is using is the same, its just an enumeration step or not. How is this possible? Does it have something to do with viable bacteria or not? I just find it so hard to believe that we are consitently seeing 1-9cfu/g in samples, seems very unlikely to me. Rarely see anything >10 cfu/g, if at all!
