Description

Listeria monocytogenes and other Listeria species, which are very common in nature, are pathogenic microorganisms for humans and many animal species. This microorganism is highly resistant to external conditions such as heat, pH and salt and can survive for years under environmental conditions. In this study, the presence and prevalence of Listeria monocytogenes was investigated in 10 samples of raw cow milk purchased from street markets in central Prizren. The presence of L. monocytogenes was detected using the Hytech Slide method in L. monocytogenes was detected in 80% (8/10) of the 10 milk samples analyzed. The results of the research revealed that raw milk sold in the street markets in the center of Prizren can be a source of pollution with L. monocytogenes and pose a potential threat to public health.

Keywords:
