Listeria monocytogenes

According to the FDA, listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

Healthy people may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
