Advertisment

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look
or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting,
nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.
Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are
particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only
mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery,
infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people
may die.
