Strange genes in a Christmas burrito? That’s a factory gate crashing … oh, nevermind, this isn’t Korea. Oh, they aren’t genes, they are bacteria. The correct spelling is “Listeria monocytogenes“. Read the Wiki article paying attention to the source of the bacterial contamination in a previous case and you’ll never eat a 7/11 burrito again.
