Abstract

Multi-virulence-locus sequence typing (MVLST) was used to analyze isolates from two major listeriosis outbreaks in the United States in 1998 and 2002 that were due to consumption of contaminated hot dogs and turkey deli meat, respectively. MVLST demonstrated high epidemiological relevance and indicated that the two outbreaks were the result of one epidemic.
