Bacillus cereus is Gram-positive, aerobic, spore-forming bacterium which usually thrive in soil, vegetable, and various raw and processed food products. Bacillus spores can survive adverse condition and germinate if condition improve, a trait which makes completely eliminating them difficult. Studies showed that when the bacterial population of B. cereus reached more than 106 cell/g toxins are produced, it can either emetic or diarrhetic enterotoxin which is attributed with acute attack of nausea and vomiting or with abdominal pain and non-bloody diarrhea, respectively. With this, B. cereus is considered as a release parameter for cooked meat and vegetables, boiled and fried rice, vanilla sauce, custards, soups, and raw vegetable sprout.
