Abstract

Ready-to-eat artisan food products are an important part of the food manufacturing industry in Ireland. However, such food products are susceptible to contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, a foodborne pathogen that causes listeriosis. Food contamination with L. monocytogenes is potentially a serious public health risk that is taken seriously by the food manufacturing industry. The following case study describes how an artisan food manufacturer addressed an occurrence of L. monocytogenes in the processing facility.
