Sounds like a homework assignment- please do your own homework.
You'll be better off for it.

To help you get started here are some ideas-
Take a trip to your library and check out 

1) a good general microbiology text
2) a food microbiology text
3) a medical microbiology text

Your library should have Bergey's manual which will help you with the current
taxonomy and nomenclature of this group of beasties.

A medical micro text, an infectious disease text, and a general micro text
should tell you which are spoilage organisms, which are food poisoning 
organisms and something about the mechanisms for each.


If you are not a student, maybe a reporter who has some assignment, still
do the above.  THe general info you gain from reading will improve your 

If your situation is neither of the above, please tell us why you need the 
requested info.  Then, perhaps someone will gladly be able to help you.
