Multi-country outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes sequence type 8 infections linked to consumption of salmon products

Published on: Thu, 25 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 A multi-country outbreak of 12 listeriosis cases caused by Listeria monocytogenes sequence type (ST) 8 has been identified through whole genome sequencing (WGS) analysis in three EU/EEA countries: Denmark (6 cases), Germany (5) and France (1). Four of these cases have died due to or with the disease. It is likely that the extent of this outbreak has been underestimated since the outbreak was identified through sequencing and only a subset of the EU/EEA count...
