Due to high mortality, listeriosis is one of the most common causes of death from illnesses associated with food, taking the second place after salmonellosis. Listeriosis, as a rule, arises as a result of consumption of contaminated products, including meat products, cheese, ready-to-eat foods. L. monocytogenes belongs to the third group of pathogenicity. Contamination by L. monocytogenes in processing of products is a constant problem in food plants. Food contamination Listeria leads to a

Analysis of the dynamic detection and of the differential identification of Listeria spp. in the meat products of poultry processing enterprises in Dnipropetrovsk region was conducted. The research was carried out by Dnipropetrovsk regional state laboratory of the state service of Ukraine for food safety and consumer protection. The results of bacteriological researches of meat samples which poultry plants gave for microbiological analysis during period 2008–2018 were used for monitoring. Microbiological research was carried out in accordance with valid international normative documents. The fluorescence analyzer Mini Vidas, France, the CAMP test were used for analysis. The biochemical properties of isolated microorganisms were established using BioMerieux API tests, France. Analyzing the number of researches and identification of microorganisms in the Dnipropetrovsk region for the period of 11 years, 3001 positive results out of 8172 analyzed samples were found (36.7%). Herewith, part of positive samples goes up from 8.5% in 2008 to 77.9% in 2018. L. ivanovii was isolated in 1523 samples (18.6%), L. inocua – 833 (10.2%), L. monocytogenes – 493 (6%), L. seeliger – 97 (1.2%), L. grayi – 36 (0.4%), L. welshimeri in 19 samples of meat products (0.2%) out of the 8172 microbiological studies conducted over 11 years. Of the six types of identified Listeria, more than half were L. ivanovii, which is twice as high as cases with L. incocua and thrice compared to L. monocytogenes.
