LISTERIA MONOCYTOGENES

Listeria monocytogenes was recognized as causing human foodborne illness in 1981. It is destroyed by cooking (170 degrees F), but a cooked product can be contaminated by poor personal hygiene. Observe 'keep refrigerated' and 'use-by' dates on labels. Listeria growth is slowed but not stopped at refrigeration temperatures, and it is acid and salt tolerant.
