Abstract

The incidence of Listeria species in vegetables marketed in Mysore city, Karnataka, India was studied. One hundred and sixty five vegetable samples marketed were analyzed for the presence of Listeria spp. Cold enrichment procedure was used for the isolation and plating was done on two selective agars PALCAM and Oxford agars. The identification of the isolates was done by biochemical characterization and confirmation by Polymerase Chain Reaction using species and genus specific primers. Three samples were found positive for Listeria spp. and they were confirmed as L. innocua and L. seeligeri.
