General Information: Listeria are Gram-positive, motile, facultative anaerobic bacteria; L.seeligeri is one of the nonpathogenic members of the genus. Strain LSCC 3954, the type strain for this species, is a soil isolate from Germany. A contaminant of soft cheese, processed meat, and smoked seafood. More than 100 strains of this organism have been isolated from environmental samples and healthy animal carriers. This species can be distinguished from other Listeria by its ability to produce acid from D-xylose, L-rhamnose, and alpha-methyl-D-mannoside.
