In this research, detection of Escherichia coli (E. coli) was done in the sauces of the street foods vendor at the University of Eastern Philippines. The result of this study will be of use to the local units that need to regulate the franchise of these street foods; to ensure that safety in the delivery of food products. Samples were collected from the stalls of the street vendors and were subjected to microbial analysis. Results showed that E. coli is present in the street sauces but in minimal count. Though the count is far from the threshold, vendors must consider increasing their knowledge and practices with GMP to ensure safe and quality food delivery.
