What is Listeriosis?
Listeriosis is a serious infection caused by eating food tainted with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The disease primarily affects elderly people, pregnant women, children, and individuals with compromised immune systems. However, people without these risk factors may also develop listeriosis.
Signs and symptoms of listeriosis include:
- Muscle aches
If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include:
- Stiff neck
- Confusion or changes in alertness
- Loss of balance
