A survey of the microbiological quality of tripe purchased in the Cheshire area was undertaken. Forty‐four samples were analysed during a 4 month period in 1991. Total viable counts were frequently high for a cooked product, 40% being 106 or greater. Listeria monocytogenes was isolated by enrichment from 9% of samples. Aeromonas spp. were isolated from 48% of samples. All 11 Aeromonas isolates, sent for further identification, were A. hydrophila. In some instances the count of Aeromonas was very high, being greater than 107 in two samples.
