Product Summary and Explanation
Listeria monocytogenes, described in 1926 by Murray, Webb, and Swann, is a widespread problem in public health and food industries. This organism has the ability to cause human illness and death, particularly in immunocompromised individuals and susceptible pregnant women. Epidemiological evidence from outbreaks of listeriosis indicate the principle route of transmission is via the consumption of foodstuffs contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Implicated vehicles of transmission include turkey frankfurters, coleslaw, pasteurized milk, Mexican style cheese, and pate.
PALCAM Broth is based on the formulation of Van Netten et al., while he was investigating the isolation of Listeria spp. from food samples. PALCAM Broth has been used for testing Listeria from raw milk.
