ABOUT LISTERIA AND LISTERIA FOOD POISONING

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium capable of causing a serious and life-threatening foodborne infection known as listeriosis. Listeriosis is caused by eating food contaminated with Listeria bacteria. Healthcare professionals may use the terms “Listeria monocytogenes” or “Listeria” when referring to the bacteria and “listeriosis” when referring to the infection.

Listeria can be found throughout the environment in soil, water, and on plant material. Animals can carry Listeria without appearing ill, and may serve as a source of contamination for meat and dairy products. Listeria can be introduced to a food manufacturing facility by any of these food materials, resulting in the contamination of food processing equipment and the environment. Once Listeria contaminates the environmental surfaces of a food processing plant, it can be very difficult to eradicate.
