The level of microbiological contamination with yeasts and moulds in samples of goat milk collected in spring, summer and autumn season was evaluated. Yeasts are present in a larger number in the analyzed goat milk with values between 1.9-3.42 log CFU/ml, contrast to molds that had a range of mean values between 1.47-3.02 log CFU/ml. Of the milk samples were isolated mould strains belonged to genera: Cladosporium sp., Fusarium sp., Penicillium sp. and yeasts genera as Kluyveromyces sp., Rhodotorula sp., Cryptococcus sp. The outcome of this study indicate mycotic contamination of goat milk that can pose serious health risk to consumers.
