In this study, the presence of Listeria spp. was investigated in a total of 157 raw milk and dairy product samples sold in Antakya (Antioch). The prevalence of Listeria spp. in raw milk and Turkish white cheese samples was found to be 2.12% and 8.23%, respectively. Listeria monocytogenes was not isolated from raw milk and found in only two cheese samples (2.35%). No Listeria spp. were isolated in any of the butter and yoghurt samples.
