Every week in different countries  reports about outbreaks of infectious diseases are appeared . This incidents may arise on any part of production cycle and can have very serious consequences for food products manufacturers.  That’s why special attention must be payed to the food safety and microbiological pollution. It is well known, that  aim of disinfection is prevention or elimination of the accumulation, reproduction and spreading  of infectious diseases agents at the environmental objects. Disinfection takes leading place in the system of preventive measures that should be seen as one of the leading epidemiological links provide security. Companies that produce, process or deliver food to the market should ensure that the consumption of these products will not harm consumers. In different countries almost every week there are reports of outbreaks of infectious diseases. Such incidents can occur on any part of the production cycle and can have serious implications for food producers. Hence the urgency is on food safety microbiological contamination. We know that task disinfection is the prevention or elimination process of accumulation, reproduction and spread of infectious diseases on environmental subjects. Most types of microbiological contamination is removed at a particular stage of purification. As result of the action both natural environmental factors and others chemical substances including disinfection materials, biological properties of infectious agents are change during weeks and days. For mycobacteria tuberculosis it is common resistance to different physical and chemical agents. Mycobacteria can transform from typical forms to adaptive forms, which can cause human and animal diseases. Main danger is that mycobacteria can contaminate soil as the results of drain  waters from slaughterhouse, dairy farms, from sick animals. In this article proposed selective nutritional media VLAKOB for determining quality of disinfection on processing enterprises, which due to its  growth properties can allow to determine  the presence of  mycobacteria and decrease test time.
