The significance of as a foodborne pathogen is complex. The severity and case-fatality rate of the disease listeriosis require appropriate preventive measures, but the characteristics of the microorganism are such that it is unrealistic to expect all food to be -free. This dilemma has generated an ongoing debate concerning both the various strategies for prevention of listeriosis and the regulation of in foods. Epidemiologic investigations of outbreaks have helped identify the vehicles of transmission and have led to an expanding list of ready-to-eat (RTE) foods that have been associated with outbreaks. Basic research on the genetics, molecular biology, and immunologic response of animals and humans to has provided detailed insights into the virulence characteristics of this fascinating pathogen. Concurrent infection can also influence susceptibility to listeriosis. FbpA behaves as a chaperone for two important virulence factors, listeriolysin O (LLO) and internalin B (InlB), probably preventing their degradation. Public health surveillance, outbreak investigations, and applied and basic research conducted during the past 30 years have helped to characterize the disease listeriosis, define the magnitude of its public health problem and its impact on the food industry, identify the risk factors associated with disease, and develop appropriate and targeted control strategies.
