A study was carried out regarding the prevalence of common food borne pathogens (Salmonella typhimurium., Staphylococcus aureus. and E. co1i in chicken meat obtained from wet market in Bangalore from different processing conditions and studied. Results revealed higher prevalence of Salmonella typhimurium. in the range of 25 to 65 per cent and contamination of meat with Salmonella typhimurium. decreased with increase in sophistication of slaughter facility. and that thigh muscle were found to be highly prone for contamination as compared to the breast muscle irrespective of the processing condition. Hundred per cent prevalence of Staphylococcus aureus, (100 percent) was observed in outlets with minimum facilities compared to the meat samples obtained from outlets with better facilities and hygiene. The prevalence of E. col Hollowed a similar trend with a range between 42 to 88 per cent indicating the lower hygiene of the meat obtained from the wet market. Lack of hygiene and better facilities have been major cause of poor microbial quality of meat.
