Authors : Yousef Davoudi and Yagoob Garedaghi

Abstract: Mycotoxins are those groups of fungus metabolites witch as the result of the consumption of contaminated food causes human or animal illness or death and the resulted illness from this is called mycotoxicosis. In this study, 100 samples from milk were analyzed for the presence of aflatoxin M1 by thin layer chromatography. This study showed that from 100 samples were analyzed a total of 84 samples (84%) were positive for aflatoxin M1 and 16 samples (16%) were negative. The range of aflatoxin M1 content was 30-630 ng L-1. Contamination rate of aflatoxin M1 in tanks milk in around (84%) with amounts ranging 30-630 ng L-1. All contaminated samples had a level of aflatoxin M1 above the European countries standard (50 ng L-1). Therefore, the following suggestions are made. Determined standard complications for aflatoxin limit value in feed and aflatoxin M1 in milk and dairy products use of effective methods for treatment of contaminated feed, milk and dairy products.
