About Listeria

Listeria, a type of bacterium, can cause serious and sometimes fatal foodborne infection known as listeriosis.

Listeriosis symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, and occasionally, gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea or diarrhea. If the Listeria infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions.

Infants and young children, the elderly, immunocompromised, and pregnant women and their fetuses are at greatest risk for developing the serious complications associated with Listeria infection.

Signs of illness typically appear from 3- 4 weeks following the consumption of Listeria contaminated food. However, symptoms can develop from within one week to 90 days after exposure to Listeria. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC, a blood or spinal fluid test will confirm listeriosis.
