In order to assess antimicrobial resistance in Listeria monocytogenes, 202 food and environmental isolates from 1996 to 2006 were tested. Only four strains displayed acquired resistance. Resistance to erythromycin, tetracycline-minocycline and trimethoprim was evidenced and genes erm(B), tet(M) and dfrD, already described in L. monocytogenes, were detected.
