The methods available for the isolation of Yersinia enterocolitica from foods are generally considered to be less than optimal, and methods for estimation of numbers are lacking. Such methods are needed to understand better the significance of foodborne yersiniosis and to provide data for exposure assessment. We describe a method for the detection and enumeration of Y. enterocolitica containing the pYV virulence plasmid (YeP+) in samples from pork surfaces. The method uses a multiplex PCR… CONTINUE READING
