The incidence of Listeria monocytogenes in raw fish, shellfish, and fish roe was investigated in seafood products collected from randomly selected retail stores in and around Tokyo, Japan. Of the 10 samples of 208 examined found positive for L. monocytogenes by mini-VIDAS LMO, seven were fish roe (cod, salmon) and three were minced tuna. Three serotypes (1/2a, 1/2b, 3b) were detected among the isolated strains; serotype 1/2a was predominant (8 of 10).
