Microbial contamination of ready-to-eat foods and beverages sold by street vendors and hawkers has become a global health problem. The study aims to evaluate microbial status in street vended food samples in Bangladesh and identify the presence of common food borne pathogens such as E coli and Vibrio cholerae by conventional cultural, microscopic and biochemical tests. A total of twenty samples (hog plum, guava; and sugarcane and lemon juices) were collected from mobile vendors from five different locations in Dhaka city. The total viable count (TVC) in all food samples was ranged from 8×103 to 2.1×108 cfu/ml. The total coliform count (TCC) varied between 1.5×104 to 2.2×108 cfu/ml. In addition, 8 E coli and 8 V cholerae strains were identified in 8 (40%) different samples out of 20 samples tested. They were found highest in sugarcane juice (50%) and lowest in lemon juice (12.5%) among different food samples. Our results demonstrated the non hygienic quality of most popular types of street vended foods suggesting the urgent need for government participation in developing suitable intervention measures to improve microbial quality.
