An epidemiological study on food-borne pathogens, bacterial infection aetiology in Romanian catering and food industry was performed in the period 2003-2008. The scope of this study was the identification and evaluation of food-borne bacterial agents present in several catering products, involved in human infections and intoxications (poisonings). In our study most cases of human food- borne infections were caused by Staphylococcus aureus, Clostridium perfringens, Clostridium botulinum, and Salmonella spp. Disease outbreaks caused by Staphylococcus aureus were usually due to the enterotoxin A (SEA). The main serotype found in diseases caused by Clostridium perfringens was serotype A. The maximum incidence of C. botulinum infections was reported in 2007, when 110 cases were identified (5 deaths). The main serotypes of Salmonella spp. isolated were: S. Montevideo (9150 cases), S. München (100 cases), S. Enteridis (75 cases), S. Newport (82 cases), S. Oranienburg (18 cases) and S. Stanley (50 cases).
