About Listeria

According to the FDA, Listeria is a type of bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, a Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. Infection with Listeria is also referred to as listeriosis. To learn more about Listeria, please see About Listeria.
