What is Listeriosis Monocytogenes?
Listeria food poisoning (listeriosis) is caused by Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. Infections typically affect pregnant women, newborn babies, and individuals with suppressed immune systems. Symptoms of listeriosis include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, difficulty breathing, and poor feeding in newborns. The earlier listeriosis is detected the better, so it is important to report any symptoms to your doctor immediately after experiencing them.
