Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning known as listeriosis. In healthy adults, symptoms typically include fever and muscle aches, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), infections are especially serious for pregnant women and babies:
“Pregnant women typically experience fever and other non-specific symptoms, such as fatigue and aches. However, infections during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn.”
