Abstract

Salmon and environmental samples from a fish farm and a salmon slaughterhouse were analysed for Listeria spp. using the USDA method and the rapid quantitative Listertest(TM). Listeria spp. were not detected in any of 119 samples analysed. However, Corynebacterium spp. gave disturbing false-positive results with the USDA method. (C) 1997 Academic Press Limited.
