is one of the most important food-borne pathogens globally. It produces various toxins and invasive enzymes and can be found in numerous food products. Milk is an important source of staphylococcal food poisoning. After pasteurization, this microorganism or its enterotoxins might still remain in pasteurized milk. Therefore, this study was to investigate the contamination of in 258 pasteurized milk from 39 cities of China. The prevalence and levels of in these samples as well as antibiotic susceptibility profiles, virulence genes, biofilm formation, and biofilm related genes, typing and MLST were used to determine the characterization among the isolates. It was found 3.9% of samples were detected in 8 of 39 cities in China. The contaminated level were not very excessive which showed the MPN values of the most positive samples (9/10) were less than 1 MPN/g. All pasteurized milk-related isolates have ability to produce biofilm and harbored , genes, other biofilm related genes were showed in 91.7% of isolates and gene were showed in 50%, except gene which were free in all isolates. The antibiotic susceptibility test showed that all isolates were resistant or intermediate-resistant to different concentrations of the antibiotics. Furthermore, 75.0% of the isolates were resistant to three or more antibiotic classes, which indicated multidrug resistance. The isolates had virulence potential, which showed 66.7% (8/12) of the isolates carried one or more virulence-associated genes. Molecular typing by MLST and typing enabled classification of these isolates into a total of 11 sequence types (STs) and types, which indicated high genetic diversity. Most of these types were related to various clinical infections. Thus, the findings of this study reflect the potential risk of infection in China. Our study also provides comprehensive analysis of the prevalence of in pasteurized milk and helps ensure more accurate treatment of human infection with effective antibiotics.
