  • The present study investigated the prevalence of multiple antibiotic resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains in different food sources collected from retail shops and markets in Vadapalani, Chennai. All S. aureus isolates were resistant to methicillin, and 93.75 % of them were multidrug resistant. The S. aureus isolates were typed by UPGMA method based on antibiotic resistance pattern observed. Approximately five homologous resistance groups (HRGs) were observed in typing the isolates.
