About Listeria

Initial symptoms of listeriosis, the infection caused by Listeria monocytogenes, may include fever, muscle aches, fatigue, and sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms, such nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions. 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. Please see About Listeria and Listeria Food Poisoning to learn more.
