Since it is very evident that it is almost impossible for the local producers to carryout quality assessment on locally produced food drinks such as Fura da nono, special attention needs to be paid to the hygiene procedures during the line of processing. In Bali metropolis of Taraba State, Nigeria, it was reported at a certain period of time in the year 2020 that some Fura da nono consumers (specifically the new migrants) came down with diarrhea after consumption. This led to this work of assessing the presence of enteric bacteria (coliforms) which are at large implicated in such health problem, in the Fura da nono sold in five different areas of Bali metropolis. These areas are Federal Polytechnic Bali, Daniya Village, Friday Market, Sabon Layi and Bonnke. Six different enteric bacterial strains were isolated and identified in the microbial assessment and analysis of the twenty five different samples collected at specific intervals in the laboratory. They include; Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae, Salmonella typhi, Shigella boydii and Proteus mirabilis, each of which is capable of causing varying degrees of gastroenteritis. The contamination was at large due to lack of hygiene in the processing of the food drink and over-exposure at the selling sites, particularly the crowded market places (Friday Market and Sabon Layi areas).
