Escherichia coli is a bacteria that can cause health problems in the human digestive system. The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation of sanitation facilities and contamination of E. coli on food in canteen of X University. Design of this study was cross-sectional by using secondary data from Susanna et al research “Sanitation and Hygiene on Food and Beverage being Served at Cafeteria of University 2015”. Samples were taken from 16 locations with 80 sample. Independent variables were clean water facilitation, sewage disposal, toilet, trash can, hand washing facility, utensils washing facility, food washing facility, and insect and mouse barrier equipment. The dependent variable was food contamination by E. coli. The result of this study indicated that 58.8% (n=47) of foods was contaminated. Bivariate analysis showed p value which was more than 0.05. Therefore, the research hypothesis was rejected which meant that all sanitation facilities had no relationships to contamination of E. coli. This study suggests HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) agent in the X University to do routine examination for bacteriological quality on food and beverages and the next reseacher to investigate E. coli on foodstuff swab samples, cooking swab samples, water samples and rectal swab.
