Thus, the objective of this study was to assess the prevalence of Listeria monocytogenes in traditional ice cream in Yazd, Iran and to summarize the studies that reported Listeria monocytogenes contamination in traditional dairy and if possible conduct metaanalyses to report single estimates for raw milk and ice cream for the whole country.
A total of 85 samples of traditional ice cream were examined for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes using a two-step selective enrichment. All isolates were subjected to standard biochemical test. We searched PubMed, science direct, Scopus, Google Scholar and Iranian local databases including Iranian Scientific Information database (, Magiran ( using the following keywords: prevalence, Listeria monocytogenes, raw milk, ice cream and Iran. Twenty-six items of related articles on raw milk and ice cream were conducted of different cities. Studies were included in the meta-analysis. Statistical heterogeneity between studies was evaluated using Cochran's Q test and I-squared. All Statistical analyses were conducted using STATA version 11.2.
