Resumen

Introducción: La transmisión de patógenos a través de alimentos está relacionada con condiciones sanitarias inadecuadas, las cuales se derivan del proceso de elaboración de los alimentos o de quien los procesa. Los manipuladores de alimentos son esenciales para preservar la inocuidad de los alimentos y proteger la salud del consumidor. Objetivo: Evaluar las características demográficas, prácticas de higiene, conocimiento, condiciones laborales y la presencia de microorganismos patógenos en manipuladores de alimentos en restaurantes de escuelas públicas de Antioquia, Colombia. Materiales y métodos: El estudio evaluó 104 manipuladores de alimentos de un municipio de Antioquia. Se recolectaron datos demográficos y muestras fecales para identificar parásitos intestinales, Salmonella spp. y Staphylococcus aureus. Resultados: Se identificó la presencia de parásitos intestinales (Entamoeba Complex y Trichuris trichiura) en 61% de mujeres. Staphylococcus aureus fue aislada del 49% de participantes. Conclusión: Se confirmó la infección de los manipuladores, lo que los convierte en fuentes potenciales de contaminación. Ellos estan comprometidos con su labor y tienen el conocimiento para preservar condiciones higiénicas básicas. Se resalta su importancia e influencia en prácticas higiénicas adecuadas para minimizar riesgos de contaminación y la necesidad de tratamiento médico y chequeos periódicos para contrarrestar riesgos para el consumidor.
