AIMS In order to study the transmission of Listeria monocytogenes in a poultry and a pork meat plant, we analysed the contamination by this pathogen over several months. METHODS AND RESULTS Five hundred and two isolates of L. monocytogenes were collected and characterized by genotyping and serotyping. Thirty-seven genotypes were obtained by ApaI-restriction analysis-pulsed field gel electrophoresis (REA-PFGE) and 35 by SmaI-REA-PFGE and resulted in 50 combined genotypes. The tracing of the… CONTINUE READING
