Listeria Infection Symptoms
Listeriosis is an infection that is caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The disease primarily affects the elderly, pregnant women, children and adults with compromised immune systems. However, in rare cases patients without these risk factors can also develop listeriosis.
Signs and symptoms of listeria food poisoning may include:
- Muscle aches
