Introduction: Due to the high consumption of confectionary products in the community, their health status monitoring is important. These products are mostly exposed to microbial pollution leading to food poisoning due to consumption. Regular monitoring of the environmental health condition of the confectionary workshops in order to achieve the desired status has a major role in improving the health status of sweet products. The aim of this study was to survey the health status of the confectionery workshops in Ilam in 2016-2017.
