Quoting from http://www.mysql.com/doc/S/E/SET.html
Normally, you perform a SELECT on a SET column using the
LIKE operator or the FIND_IN_SET() function:
mysql> SELECT * FROM tbl_name WHERE set_col LIKE '%value%';
mysql> SELECT * FROM tbl_name WHERE FIND_IN_SET('value',set_col)>0;
But the following will also work:
mysql> SELECT * FROM tbl_name WHERE set_col = 'val1,val2';
mysql> SELECT * FROM tbl_name WHERE set_col & 1;
The first of these statements looks for an exact match. The
second looks for values containing the first set member.
