This study was performed to study for the presence of E.coli type 1, K.pneumoniae. Listeria and Salmonella species in Ice cream samples marketed in Elazig. Of 73 samples examined, 22 (30.13 %) had E.coli type 1. The numbers of samples containing K.pneumoniae, E.coli type 1 + K.pneumoniae, E.coli type 1 + K.pneumoniae + Listeria, E.coli type 1 Listeria were 18 (24.65 %), 30 (41.19 %), 1 (1.36 %), 1 (1.36 %) respectively. Two samples had Listeria species. The result of identification of Listeria species have shown that all (s) isolates in the first sample belonged to L.monocytogenes. In the second sample 3 isolates were L.monocytogenes, one of the remaining isolates belonged to L.innocua and the other was L.grayii. All samples were negative for Salmonella.
