Microbial contamination of food and water is a major source of illness. Severe contamination is generally linked to contaminated water, but transmission could occur through contaminated foods served by the street vendors and restaurants. Owing to rapid urban population growth, many people live in conditions of extreme poverty and poor sanitation. This has also seen to aggravate food safety problems.

For the microbial screening of various food samples biochemical cherecterization had been performed.
