Prevalence of Antibiotic Resistant Listeria monocytogenes in Sea Foods of Tuticorin Coast , Southeastern India

  title={Prevalence of Antibiotic Resistant Listeria monocytogenes in Sea Foods of Tuticorin Coast , Southeastern India},
  author={K. Immaculate Jeyasanta and Jamila Patterson},
World Health Organization concludes that L. monocytogenes is an environmental contaminant mainly transmitted to humans through food. Although the incidence of listeriosis is at least 100 times lower than those of other food borne pathogens, such as Campylobacter and Salmonella, the seriousness of the disease it mainly affects vulnerable sections of the population, has focused a great deal of attention on L. monocytogenes. It has now become the target for much of the microbiological testing… Expand

Prevalence and typing of Listeria monocytogenes in ready-to-eat food products on the Belgian market.
Contamination levels were in most cases low; however, levels higher than 100 CFU/g were detected in some samples of smoked salmon, smoked halibut, and prepared minced meat, indicating that cross-contamination occurred at the producer and retail level. Expand
The incidence of Listeria monocytogenes in meat, poultry and seafood plants in the Nordic countries

Incidence of Listeria monocytogenes in fresh foods in Barcelona (Spain).
From September 1989 to March 1990, a study of Listeria spp. was carried out on 311 samples of raw foodstuffs from markets and other establishments in the city of Barcelona. These foodstuffs includedExpand

The discovery of L. monocytogenes in sediment and water samples from farming tanks and earth ponds supports the assumption that the primary production, and probably the raw fish, is a source of Listeria contamination in fish products. Expand
