The Control and Management of Listeria monocytogenes Contamination of Food

Thursday, 14 July 2005

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that is commonly present in the environment and in food.

The FSAI has published this report to raise awareness and to help minimise the potential risks of foodborne  human infection with L. monocytogenes.

This report is intended to be a source document for food businesses. However, much of the detail will also be useful for members of the public, health care professionals and public policy makers seeking information on foodborne  listeriosis.
