The results obtained showed that superiority of Listeria Rapid Test which yielded 12% of Listeria positive samples, whereas FDA yielded 8%. Identification of isolated Listeria spp., confirmed the reliability of Listeria Rapid Test to detect L. monocytogenes( 8%) two times more than that obtained by FDA (4%). L. seeligeri was found in only one unpasteurized cream sample by both methods. One of ten(10%) market raw milk samples proved to be L. monocytogenes positive sample by both methods. Availability of Listeria Rapid Test as a new method for rapid detection of Listerias in imported and exported dairy products.
