isteria monocytogenes is an important foodborne pathogen. It plays a significant role in food safety control due to its wide distribution in nature. The genus listeria contains 6 species of low G+C content gram-positive bacteria closely related to the genus bacillus [1]. The species are L. monocytogenes, L. ivanovii, L. innocua, L. seeligeri, L. welshimeri and L. grayi. Studies show that L. monocytogenes strains from food and food-environments are susceptible to the antibiotics commonly used in… CONTINUE READING
