    Again and again! Every single day there is another contamination with listeria in good food!
    It seems that many foodproducers do not want to avoid the risk of listeria contamination. Or do these producers not know of Listex P100. These peope should read their professional journals!
    Listex P100 is an inexpensive phage preparation, which is approved by the FDA and in almost all other countries of the world. Listex P100 is 100% safe, it does not affect taste odor texture of the food. It leaves the “good” bacteria intact . Especially cheese needs these good bacteria. It is easy tu use.
    Just look it up in your browser and you will find it.
    I myself got listeriose and was sick for months. I really escaped from death!
    Thats why I want to fight Listeria!!
    Want to know more? contact me G.van.der.feltz@ziggo.nl
    I wish you all a listeria free life.
