The study was carried out to determine and evaluate the bacterial quality of commercially retailed kunu aya in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State Nigeria. 20 samples were collected from various locations in Yenagoa and the bacteriological quality was determined by the classical spread plate method using nutrient agar, mannitol salt agar and salmonella/shigella agar. The total heterotrophic counts was between 1.10 x 106– 9.70 x 106, the total Staphylococci counts was between 1.10 x 106- 9.40 x 106 and the total Salmonella-Shigella counts was between 1.30 x 107– 7.30 x 106. The identity of isolated organisms was confirmed using biochemical tests and gram staining techniques. The organisms isolated include: Escherichia coli, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Salmonella and Shigella SPP. Considering the microbiological criteria for ready to eat food, the study therefore concluded that all kunu aya retailed in yenagoa are considered unsafe for consumption and as such, every individual should prepare theirs at home with clean water and under hygienic condition. ...
