Author(s): Chandrama Baruah, Ruma Bhattacharyya, Pranati Das and Pranab Dutta
Abstract:
Food safety of street vended foods is an integral part to reduce the risk of adverse health outcomes amidst customers. The present investigation was undertaken with specific objective to assess the handling and vending practices of the street food vendors and microbiological analysis of food samples. Presence of high microbial in collected food samples, hand and utensil swabs ranging from 1×103 to 172×103 cfu g-1 or ml-1, clearly indicates poor vending and handling practices of the street food vendors, which can be related to their poor knowledge and attitude towards food safety.
