Background: Contamination of broiler feeds with different mycotoxins is one of the major problems associated with poultry sector. Ninevah governorate/Iraq as any other Middle East countries claimed from the contamination of poultry feeds with different fungi and mycotoxins.. Objective: A survey was conducted in Ninevah governorate/Iraq to assess the level and extent of Fumonisin B1 contamination in commercial broiler feeds. A total of 60 broiler feed samples randomly collected from five different localities in Ninevah governorate/Iraq during January to March 2014 were analyzed by a competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of fumonisin B1. Results: Naturally occurring fumonisin B1 was found in 50/60 (83.33%) in all tested broiler feed samples with an average of 286.5± 56.69 μg /kg and a range of 102 to 1200 μg/kg.. Conclusion: no sample was detected exceeded the accepted FDA level of 50 mg/kg feed for fumonisin B1.
