Title:A nyers tejben potenciálisan jelen levő kórokozók közegészségügyi jelentősége
SUMMARY In this review article the authors highlight the public health significance of the pathogens causing either primary, intravital infection of the raw milk or secondary, mainly faecal contamination of it. Of the pathogens causing intravital infection, first the zoonotic importance of the mastitis pathogens, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, other staphylococci and streptococci, coliforms, heterotrophic algae, udder-pathogenic fungi and Listeria monocytogenes, that mainly gets into the milk as a secondary contaminant, but rarely can also cause mastitis, is discussed. Then, the food safety significance of pathogens causing systemic diseases accompanied by the dissemination of the agents, such as Mycobacterium spp., Brucella spp., Coxiella burnetii and the Tick-borne encephalitis virus is outlined. Of the secondary, mainly faecal contaminants, the public health significance of Salmonella spp., Campylobacter spp., Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis, Yersinia enterocolitica and Bacillus cereus is discussed.
