    Introduction. Listeria monocytogenes is a ubiquitous, Gram-positive, non-spore forming, facultative, non-acid fast, rod-shaped intracellular pathogen, which has been identified since the early s as the causative organism in various outbreaks of foodborne disease. The size of the rods vary from µm to µm in diameter and from µm to µm in length. The book builds on the trusted and established sections on food preservation by modified atmosphere, high pressure and pulsed electric field processing, food-borne pathogens, food regulations, fresh-cut produce, new food products, and risk assessment and analysis.

    Listeriosis is a foodborne illness of major public health concern because of the severity of its consequences (in-fections of the central nervous system, septicaemia, and abortion), the high case-fatality ratio (20–23% of cases), and the long incubation time (1). Although. Listeriosis is a bacterial infection most commonly caused by Listeria monocytogenes, although L. ivanovii and L. grayi have been reported in certain cases. Listeriosis can cause severe illness, including severe sepsis, meningitis, or encephalitis, sometimes resulting in lifelong harm and even at risk of severe illness are the elderly, unborn babies, newborns and those who are Specialty: Infectious disease.

When it comes to foodborne illness (food poisoning), most people are familiar with E. coli or Salmonella but less so with Listeriosis. This illness is caused by the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes which is found in the soil, water, decaying vegetation and the intestinal tract of poultry and cattle.

It can also be found in the environment of food processing plants and in the retail setting.The suddenness with which Listeria monocytogenes emerged as the etiological agent of a foodborne disease is unparalleled.

The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and legionellosis are examples of two other human diseases that appeared suddenly, but unlike foodborne listeriosis, the etiological agents of these syndromes were previously unknown as human pathogens, and they proved to be.Tips on how to avoid foodborne listeria infections (listeriosis) by taking measures to ensure good food hygiene in the kitchen.
