Listeria monocytogenes in smallgoods: risks and controls

Listeria monocytogenes, has been recognised as a major cause of foodborne disease over the past 20 years.

There is plenty of evidence that it can be a problem for ready-to-eat meat products. For this reason,it has been the focus of food safety activity at Meat & Livestock Australia over the past few years.

Scientists at University of Tasmania carried out a national risk assessment of Listeria in smallgoods and demonstrated how antimicrobials reduce that risk, and researchers at Food Science Australia reveiwed anti-Listeria technologies.
