The effect of incubation temperatures from 12 to 32 C on yeast and mold counts was determined using both antibiotic and acidified media to control bacterial growth. Highest counts were obtained on the antibiotic medium. Lowest counts occurred with both media at 32 C. Little difference in recovery was apparent in the range of 12 to 27 C, with the fungi responding in a similar manner in both media to shifts in incubation temperature.
