WELCOME TO SMT LABS

Thanks for clicking through to us and your interest in our Listeria monocytogenes download.

Listeria monocytogenes (abbreviated Lm) is a foodborne pathogen that causes a group of human illnesses collectively called listeriosis. Human listeriosis is mostly acquired by ingestion of ready-to-eat (RTE) foods contaminated with L. monocytogenes. Consumption of such foods and concerns about listeriosis have increased greatly during the past 30 years in developed countries. South Africa is now known to have the largest Listeriosis outbreak on record which took place in 2018-2019.

Our handy guide is perfect to help you understand which foods Lm is commonly associated with and hence why you should test for Lm. We hope it helps.
