The methods and the standards of Argentine Alimentary Code were used in the analysis of water.
For foods were applied the laboratory techniques of the (ICMSF) and the results were interpreted according to norms ad hoc because they were not standardized in Argentina.
In 71 samples of water. 35% were not potable.
In 133 samples of foods, 19,5% were not satisfactory. principally because of high counts of total coliforms, aerobic mesophyll bacteria and faecal coliforms.
The results indicated lack of hygiene in the culinary procedures, in the environment and in the cooks, besides insufficient cooking temperatures.
The pathogenic agent most often found was Bacillus cereus.
Neither Salmonella spp nor Escherichia coli were found.
