Listeria monocytogenes has emerged into the realm of disease causing bacteria as a pathogen of public health importance. Its opportunistic and ubiquitous nature has led to an ever increasing number of case reports implicating this organism in human and animal disease. Following its discovery Listeria has been observed in many countries from the tropics to the arctic (6). In addition to human subjects, Listeria has been found with a very wide host range which includes 37 mammals, 17 fowls, ticks, fish, crustaceans, silage, soil, dust, slaughter house waste, stream water, sewage and mud.
