Lactose Monensin Glucoronate Agar media for coliform detection ?

I frequently use membrane filtration systems to enumerate microorgamisms in 
foods. I have been told by a distributor to use LMG (Lactose Monensin 
Glucoronate Agar) for the enumeration of coliforms (and with glucose for 
enterobacteriaceaes) for a HGMF procedure. I am not familiar with monensin. 
Does anybody have positive experience with this media, or with the use of 
monensin as a selective reagent ?

Thank you
