The aim of this study was evaluation of microbiological quality of delicate products in Slovakia during years 2007 - 2011. In this study 14 834 samples were collected and 1223 (8.24 %) samples did not comply with microbiological criteria. Coliform bacteria were detected in 618 samples (4.17 %), E. coli was detected in 298 samples (2.01 %). Yeasts and filamentous microscopic fungi were detected in 397 samples (2.68 %). Listeria monocytogenes was detected in 41 samples (0.28 %), Staphylococcus aureus in 12 samples (0.08 %), Bacillus cereus in 13 samples (0.09 %), Salmonella spp. in 4 samples (0.03 %) and sulphidreduces clostridia were not detected in all samples. Coliform bacteria indicate poor operational hygiene.
