HELP!please!what are the possible food sources for staphylococcus?
Staphylococcus occurs naturally and normally harmlessly on human skin and in the mucus up your nose. So the answer is anything where the person preparing it hasn’t washed their hands properly before preparing the food and / or hasn’t refrigerated the food properly after preparation allowing the bacteria to grow. Sorry I can’t be more specific but this kind of food poisoning is not that specifc to certain types of food unlike other types of food poisening. If you’ve eaten somewhere where the chef or person preparing it had a cold then there is a good chance that could have been the source, but I wouldn’t go round making accusations.
