Abstract

During the period 2006-2009, 453 samples of various food products were collected and analyzed for Listeria monocytogenes. In order to increase the knowledge of the ecology and epidemiology of this organism, isolates were characterized by serotyping, and PCR for the presence of the main virulence-associated genes and genetic relatedness.
