Eating foods contaminated with listeria can lead to listeriosis, a food poisoning infection that causes symptoms including fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
These symptoms can take up to 70 days after exposure to develop, so consumers who have eaten the recalled salads are urged to monitor themselves for symptoms in the coming months.
