ABSTRACT
Food production is safe and necessary practice consumer rights, including in university cafeterias, space that serves a diverse customers. It is therefore of fundamental importance to evaluate the health of food, thus preventing waterborne diseases and food. This study aimed to evaluate the microbiological quality of water and food offered in the cafeteria of a university in southern Minas Gerais. For water of human consumption, we analyzed the micro-organisms recommended by the 2914 Ordinance of the Ministry of Health, and all samples showed satisfactory results. For food, we analyzed the contamination indicators suggested by ANVISA (RDC 12/2001). There was the presence of yeasts and molds in samples of cheese bread and orange juice. In addition, we confirmed the presence of Salmonella ssp in esfiha meat and chicken drumstick. Thus, confirmatory analyzes were performed, and the continued positive Salmonella ssp. Moreover, the repeated analyzes, we found a significant presence of coagulase positive staphylococci in all foods. The results show satisfactory sanitary quality of some foods analyzed.
