*Beginning with CY 2008, all yearly and quarterly sample results will be posted according to the date the sample was collected. Prior to CY 2008, yearly posting of microbiological data results was based upon the sample analysis completion date. For this reason, data from CY 2008 can not be directly compared to CY 2007 and prior years.

a Percent Positive
b (Number Positive/Number Analyzed)
c This total does not include 5,047 product contact surface and environmental samples that were analyzed as part of RLm. Thus, the total number of L. monocytogenes analyses for CY 2008, excluding all follow-up sampling and sampling of imported products, was 18,047.
