Abstract:
The aim of the study was to characterize strains of Listeria monocytogenes isolated from ready to eat (RTE) products collected as part of official food control and monitoring in Poland. A total of 105 L. monocytogenes isolates from RTE products: 54- cakes and 51 – delicatessen products were examined. The presence L. monocytogenes in cakes and delicatessen products was 0.4% and 0.7% respectively suggesting the level of contamination of RTE products with L. monocytogenes is very low.
