Abstract

Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) is an ubiquitous bacterium that causes a foodborne illness, the Listeriosis. PFGE-based studies revealed low genetic diversity among 126 strains isolated from pork products from 2000 to 2001, in France. 78% of these strains displayed two AscI PFGE profiles “a1” and “a2”, which were pork specific, in comparison to clinical strains during the same period1.
