Crab is consumed using wood hammer and granite crushing board, which when poorly sanitized
can contribute to increase the number of cases of foodborne diseases. Interesting in evaluate the
hygienic sanitary conditions of these crab cracking tools, samples of wood hammer and of granite crushing board were collected at seaside restaurants of Aracaju and were subjected to analysis of
molds and yeasts, aerobic mesophilic bacteria and fecal coliforms. Through this study, it was
possible to conclude that 100% of utensils used to eat crab in some restaurants presented
unsatisfactory hygienic sanitary conditions demonstrating the incorrect cleansing of these tools,
