Gram-positive nonmotile coccus. It has been known since the 1950s that Staphylococci play a role in the fermentation of dry sausages. Known as Staphylococcus carnosus, these non-pathogenic bacteria are used to allow the fermentation and ripening process to be carried out under controlled conditions. Thus food poisoning and food spoilage microorganisms can be suppressed. During the ripening process of dry sausage, S. carnosus exerts several desired functions such as giving the typical red color, and the development of characteristic flavor. Commercial starter cultures of S. carnosus are manufactured in many European countries, and therefore S. carnosus is regarded as a "food grade" staphylococcal species. Its natural environment remains unknown.

The TM300 genome does not contain mobile elements such as plasmids, insertion sequences or transposons, and has only 1 prophage; the number of repeat sequences is markedly decreased, suggesting a comparatively high genome stability. It lacks most of the toxins typical of S. aureus as well as genes involved in biofilm formation, underscoring its nonpathogenic status (adapted from PubMed 19060169).
