The toxin produced by Staphylococcal bacteria growing in food produces a type of foodborne illness.
MRSA is short for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections. There are currently two types of MRSA:
community-acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA) and hospital-acquired MRSA (HA-MRSA).
Toxic Shock Syndrome is most often caused by staphylococcal bacterial toxins, but streptococcal bacteria can cause a similar illness.
