Resumo: Staphylococcal enterotoxins (SE) are emetic toxins and are one of the main causes of food poisoning in humans. It is known that about 95% of staphylococcal food poisoning outbreaks are caused by SE types SEA to SEE. In this study, to investigate the distribution of staphylococcal enterotoxin genes (sea to see) in Staphylococcus aureus, 40 isolates obtained in Alagoas-Brazil from “coalho” cheese were analyzed by PCR. All S. aureus isolates were found to be positive for one or more se genes. Among the 40 isolates of S. aureus positive by PCR, the genotypes found were sea (32.5%), seb(22.5%), sec (42.5%), sed (25%), see (42.5%) and associations sea+sec (15%) and sec+see (30%). During this work, in seven samples of “coalho” cheese, obtained from four different industrial brands of sertão Alagoano the occurrence of S. aureus, Salmonella spp., Listeria and microorganisms indicators of fecal contamination was also determined. All of the samples were positive to coagulase positive staphylococci, and three samples (42.9%) were positive for Salmonella spp.. Regarding the contamination by total coliforms, all samples showed values above the limits established in the Brazilian legislation and 57.1% presented fecal coliforms. Such values are alarming since the majority of the analyzed products were inappropriate for consumption.
