Information on Listeria and Listeriosis Symptoms
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that there are 1,591 cases of foodborne listeriosis, resulting in 255 deaths, in the U.S. each year. Listeriosis affects primarily older adults, individuals with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women.
Listeriosis symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, fatigue, and sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
Infection with Listeria may remain limited to intestinal tract (non-invasive), or the bacteria may spread beyond the intestinal tract (invasive) causing a life-threatening septicemia or meningitis. Other complications may include endocarditis, abscess formation, pneumonia, and eye and or joint inflammation.
