Listeria monocytogenes pathogenic bacterium, transmissible through contaminated food consumption. The pork meat sector has been hit hard by L. monocytogenes-related outbreaks in France. Numerous studies have been carried out to investigate the genetic diversity of L. monocytogenes pork strains from food or some food factories but never from the entire production chain.
