Qualities of water used and food processed were evaluated for their physical, chemical and biological constituents. Chi-square test was used to evaluate the satisfactory level of the consumers on the hygienic practices of the food stalls. No chemical contamination such as arsenic content was included in water used in the food stalls. Food borne pathogens such as E.coli and Coliform were found in the stored water and ice samples. Pathogenic bacteria such as Samonella and V.cholerae were not detected in food served. It has been observed that E.coli, Coliform, and Staphylococcus aureus consisted in the food sold with the acceptable limit of <10 CFU/g. Bacterial constituents were also found in Swap samples such as worker hand, cutting board and serving plate with the allowable limit of 200 CFU/cm2.
