Listeria Food Poisoning

The food poisoning bacteria Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections. The highest risk is for young children, older adults, people with weak immune systems, and pregnant women.

The symptoms of Listeria infection in a healthy adult may include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Pregnant women who are infected with Listeria may not show any symptoms, or only a mild illness, before suffering a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infection of the newborn.
