Özet

The growing and toxin-producing ability of strains of Staphylococcus aureus producing enterotoxin A (SEA 10652 FDA 196E), B (SEB 10654 FDA 243), C (SEC 10655 137) and D (SED 10656 494) were investigated in cig kofte (a raw ball prepared by the hand-kneading of lean ground-beef, fine bulgur and a variety of spices). For this purpose, cig kofte samples prepared under experimental conditions (Group I containing enterotoxin A, Group II containing enterotoxin B, Group III containing enterotoxin C, Group IV containing enterotoxin D, and Group V (mix) containing enterotoxins A, B, C, and D) were separately contaminated by strains of S. aureus at the level of 10(5) cfu/g, and the samples were stored at 10degreesC, at room temperature (21-23degreesC) and at 30degreesC. The counting of S. aureus colonies and enterotoxin determination in the samples was performed at the initiation of storage, and after 2, 4, 6. 12 and 24 h.
