On November 19, 2018, whole genome sequencing of investigative samples collected from Long Phung showed that the samples were closely related genetically to Listeria monocytogenes from ill people. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2018/recall-116-2018-release" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2018/recall-116-2018-release
