Abstract: The present study aimed to give an available, easy, safe and effective solution to reduce bacterial load of some our popular foods. Thirty beef liver samples that randomly collected from different retail meat shops at Damietta City, were bacteriologically examined to determine their contamination by some bacterial contaminants that of health significance, total bacterial (mesophilic), coliforms, pathogenic E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus and anaerobic gas producing sporeformers counts were performed. The obtained results showed that the concerned bacteria were determined in 100.00; 63.33; 43.33; 20.00 and 20.00 %, respectively. The respective mean values were 48×105 ± 28×105; 30.8 ± 15.52; 3.2 ± 1.08; 240.67 ± 154 and 91.1 ± 50.18 cell/gm. Studying the effectiveness of vinegar solution 2.5% acetic acid by immersion technique in reducing bacterial load, to improve quality and safety showed reduction by 92.21; 70.72; 38.44; 90.31 and 72.52 % respectively. The public health significance was declared.
