A joint multiagency project was initiated in response to a Salmonella outbreak in San Diego County, California, in 2004. Samples of cheese were collected during four 1-day operations at the San Ysidro port of entry, along the United States-Mexico border. Surveyed participants were persons crossing the border as pedestrians or in vehicles who had a minimum of 2.27 kg of cheese, which may suggest a potential diversion to illegal marketing. In addition, data were collected about the cheese to… 

Tracking Foodborne Pathogenic Bacteria in Raw and Ready-to-Eat Food Illegally Sold at the Eastern EU Border.

This study shows that cross-border trade from nonmember states represents a neglected route of transmission of foodborne pathogens into the European Union that could lead to sporadic or family-associated cases of disease.

Surveillance of Fresh Artisanal Cheeses Revealed High Levels of Listeria monocytogenes Contamination in the Department of Quindío, Colombia

This is the first study on the presence of L. monocytogenes in artisanal fresh cheeses sold in the municipalities of the Department of Quindío, Colombia, and the findings revealed very high percentages of contaminated samples.

Detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex by PCR in fresh cheese from local markets in Hidalgo, Mexico.

Results suggest that cheeses prepared with raw milk contaminated with M. bovis are being sold and consumed by humans, which may cause tuberculosis.

Detection of Mycobacterium bovis in artisanal cheese in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil

Role of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the regulatory management of human listeriosis in the United States.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration strategy over the past three decades to combat listeriosis is described, including early actions taken to address outbreaks during the 1980s and policy decisions regarding the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in FDA-regulated foods.

Whole Genome Sequencing Links Mycobacterium bovis From Cattle, Cheese and Humans in Baja California, Mexico

WGS provided evidence of ongoing local transmission of M. bovis among the dairies in this high-TB burden region of BCA, as well as show close relationships between isolates recovered from humans, cheese, and cattle.

Prevalence and survival of Listeria monocytogenes in various types of cheese-A review

Given that Regulation (EC) N°2073/2005 distinguishes cheeses allowing or not the survival of L. monocytogenes based on pH and water activity, the review also focuses on the determinants of this growth/no growth in the same types of cheese.

Short communication: Viable Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis in retail artisanal Coalho cheese from Northeastern Brazil.

This study reports the first detection of MAP in retail Coalho cheese in Brazil by PCR and culture and identifies the presence of MAP-specific DNA in the analyzed samples for the first time in Brazil.

Longitudinal Analysis of the Microbiological Quality of Raw Cow's Milk Samples Collected from Three Small Family Dairy Farms in Mexico over a 2-Year Period.

FDF provide raw milk to a large proportion of the Mexican population, but its consumption could be harmful to health, emphasizing the need to implement national microbiological quality guidelines for raw milk intended for direct human consumption.



Mycobacterium bovis Infections in San Diego: A Clinicoepidemiologic Study of 73 Patients and a Historical Review of a Forgotten Pathogen

Investigation of patients presented with microbiologically documented M. bovis infections revealed that the majority (80%) were of Hispanic origin, and the presence of reactivation disease in adults and primary disease in children indicate that this mycobacterium remains endemic in Mexican beef and dairy herds.

Survival of bioluminescent Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli O157:H7 in soft cheeses.

Pasteurized and raw milks that had been inoculated at 10(4) cfu/ml with bioluminescent strains of Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli O157:H7 were used in the manufacture of Camembert and

Foodborne pathogens in milk and the dairy farm environment: food safety and public health implications.

Information presented supports the model in which the presence of pathogens depends on ingestion of contaminated feed followed by amplification in bovine hosts and fecal dissemination in the farm environment, and isolation of bacterial pathogens with similar biotypes from dairy farms and from outbreaks of human disease substantiates this hypothesis.


The patient, a native of the West Indies, aged 41 years, a steamship steward by occupation, came to me complaining of difficult and painful urination, dribbling, and a thick white discharge from the urethra.
