What is Listeria?

Listeria infection, or listeriosis, is a serious and sometimes fatal foodborne illness caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are about 880 confirmed cases of listeriosis in the U.S. each year.

Listeriosis affects primarily pregnant women (and sometimes their developing fetuses), newborns, older adults, and adults with weakened immune systems.

What are the symptoms of Listeriosis?

Initial symptoms may include fever, chills, muscle aches, fatigue, and sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include headache, weakness, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions. Because presentation of the infection can be affected by the type of infection or the patient’s risk group, it is important to direct your questions and concerns to your health care professional.

About Listeria And Listeria Food Poisoning

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium capable of causing a serious and life-threatening foodborne infection known as listeriosis. Listeriosis is caused by eating food contaminated with Listeria bacteria. Healthcare professionals may use the terms “Listeria monocytogenes” or “Listeria” when referring to the bacteria and “listeriosis” when referring to the infection.

Listeria can be found throughout the environment in soil, water, and on plant material. Animals can carry Listeria without appearing ill, and may serve as a source of contamination for meat and dairy products. Listeria can be introduced to a food manufacturing facility by any of these food materials, resulting in the contamination of food processing equipment and the environment. Once Listeria contaminates the environmental surfaces of a food processing plant, it can be very difficult to eradicate.

Listeria Symptoms And Listeria Complicaitons

Listeriosis affects primarily older adults, individuals with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women. If a pregnant woman experiences a Listeria infection, bacteria may cross the placenta causing a miscarriage, premature delivery, still birth, or an infection in the new born. Persons not belonging to one of these high risk demographic groups can also experience a severe case of listeriosis.

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.

Listeriosis can develop for up to two months after an individual consumes a Listeria contaminated food. Initial symptoms may include fever, chills, muscle aches, fatigue, and sometimes-gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include headache, weakness, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions. Pregnant women may experience only mild flu-like symptoms. Because presentation and outcome of the infection can be affected by the type of infection (non-invasive vs. invasive) or the patient’s risk group, it is important to direct your questions and concerns to your healthcare professional promptly.
