Food-borne infections are becoming a global health threat and are being viewed as a major public health concern. Contamination occurred as a result of the usage of contaminated raw food materials and particles, polluted water, unsanitary preparation techniques, and contaminated containers. A total of one hundred samples were obtained from twenty different street food vendors for this study. From the samples collected, food-borne pathogens are isolated and identified. Isolated samples are used to assess the prevalence of food-borne diseases. Salmonella spp. (15), E. coli (25), Staphylococcus aureus (10), Shigella spp. (5), Listeria monocytogenes (5), and other microorganisms (10) were found.
