Abstract


The microbiological quality analysis of 914 samples of food products, taken at restaurants and food outlets the most vulnerable to human health in the Tetouan region (Northwest of Morocco) between 2012 and 2017, were conducted at the Regional Laboratory for Epidemiological Diagnosis and Environmental Health. This analysis showed that the rate of non-compliance of different food categories reached 77.8% during 2012, and then it dropped to a percentage of 60.5% in 2014, and a rate of 62.5% during the year 2017. This non-compliance affected all the food categories studied, but it varies according to the type of food. Meat products and raw vegetables are the most contaminated, with a rate of non-compliance of 80.75% and 81.81% respectively, followed by dairy products with a rate of 63.47%, and ready meals with 60 %.
