Unexpected Dangers of Chicken Broth
Optimum Growing Conditions
What is Staphylococcus Aureus?
Reproduce through binary fission, a method of asexual reproduction in which one cell divides into equal parts to form two cells.
Average growth rate at optimum is about 42 minutes. If you start with one cell, you'll have approximately 8.6 billion at the end of one day.
Optimum growth temperature is 17 degrees centigrade. (Approx 62.6 degrees Fahrenheit)
Optimal food for growth is chicken broth at 17 degrees centigrade.
is a bacteria.
Commonly found in foods that are handled by humans.
Bacteria is present on every humans skin and in their nasal passages.

Enter Food Supply
Bacteria is naturally occurring, and is present on the skin of at least 25% of the human population.
Bacteria also enters food supply through humans and can be transmitted to food through careless handling and preparation of foods.
S. Aureus can be detected in food under a microscope or identified as a cause of illness after infection.
There is now way to test for S. Aureus except examination under microscope. Identification generally takes an expert.
Discovered in the year 1880
Sir Alexander Ogston (1844-1929) a surgeon is credited with the discovery
Discovered after surgeries in surgical abscesses as pus
reproduces through a process called binary fission. A method of asexual(no sexual interaction) reproduction in which one cell divides into equal parts to form two cells.
