Methods: A total of 1050 food samples including 620 dairy products and 430 raw meat were purchased and were collect- ed from September 2013 to June 2014, in Hamadan, Iran. Food samples have been analyzed differentially according to Iran national standard (number= 1194) for S.aureus identifica- tion. The antibiotic resistance of 98 S. aureus isolates from dairy products and raw meat were determined by disk agar diffusion (DAD) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods.

Results: The using of DAD method, 23.4% (23.98) of the S. aureus isolates were resistant to Cefoxitin and also by PCR method, 24. …
