    this this the organisms that contaminated products in different types of closures. 

    My questions are 
    1. other than pseudomonas aeruginosa and candida albican in these organisms, which others are also pathogen or harmful for consumer? 

    2. What are the sources of pseudomonas aeruginosa? That is the only organism that has contaminated all samples in every closure type.

    Infectio depends the microbe potentially/numbers and susceptibility of host (consumers).   In theory each of the microbes ‘could’ be.

    P. aeruginosa (and other Gram negatiuve bacteria) in shampoo - prob water borne.  In cream - like the rest - prob from user skin or air.
