This study was conducted to analyze the food safety management practices and to provide data that could be used to improve food safety management at kindergarten foodservice establishments in Daegu and Gyeongbuk province. Microbiological hazard analysis was conducted from May to July, 2008 at the four foodservice establishments. A total (20 items) of foodservice facilities, cooking utensils, and equipment were tested about total plate counts, coliforms, E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella spp., and Listeria monocytogenes. The microbiological detected levels were higher than the critical limits for prepreparing and cooking knives, chopping boards, working tables (both prepreparing and cooking), refrigerator (inside wall), bart, basket, and tray. E. coli, Salmonella spp., and Listeria monocytogens were not detected in any samples. However, Staphylococcus aureus were detected in rubber gloves for cooking and trench in the bottom at one foodservice establishment. In conclusion, these results suggest that a prerequisite programs guideline should be provided to improve the food safety levels at kindergarten foodservice establishments and the foodservice manager must maintain proper food safety technique for foodservice facilities, cooking utensils, and equipment at kindergarten foodservice establishments to prevent cross-contamination and spread of foodborne pathogens.
