Abstract

A prospective study was carried out in food and clinical samples from Mangalore, South India, during March 1997-December 2001, to determine the incidence of Listeria spp. Bacteriological investigations were done on 633 clinical and 320 food samples. Listeria monocytogenes was isolated from two clinical and two food samples. The incidence of Listeria spp. was 0.3% in clinical and 17.5% in food samples. Seafood, beef, raw milk, vegetables showed the presence of Listeria innocua.
