Quick Reference

The enterotoxin produced when staphylococci, often introduced by food handlers, reproduce in prepared food such as dishes containing cream, salad dressing, custard, eggs, barbecued chicken, etc., stored at room temperature for more than an hour or so. This toxin is tasteless, odorless, and heat stable. It often causes explosive bouts of vomiting followed by diarrhea and sometimes extreme prostration, with an incubation time of a few hours after eating the contaminated food.
