Knowlege society about food additives as a mixture of food is often confused with hazardous chemicals so abuse of hazardous chemicals in food occured. Report of Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan (BPOM) in 2011 stated, from 3206 sample of ‘Pangan Jajanan Anak Sekolah’ (PJAS) consisting of noodle, meatball, snacks and ‘kudapan’ showed that 43 (1,34%) samples contain formaldehyde. This study aims to detect whether there is contamination of formaldehyde in meatballs sold in the Gonilan, Kartosura, Sukoharjo. The method used in this research is descriptive observational.
