Listeria Infection and Symptoms
Listeriosis is a serious infection caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium called Listeria monocytogenes. Symptoms may include muscle ache, fever, diarrhea, and nausea. In some cases the infection may spread to the nervous system which, in severe cases, may cause brain infection and/or meningitis. Listeria is especially dangerous in immune-deficient individuals such as young children and the elderly. Pregnant women who contract Listeria are at risk for miscarriage or still birth.
