The Dangers of Listeria Food Poisoning
As with most other types of foodborne illnesses, the effects of listeriosis are most susceptible to vulnerable groups such as pregnant women, babies, the elderly and people with reduced immunity. Among these groups, listeriosis is often severe and life threatening. Signs and symptoms of listeria food poisoning include:
- abdominal cramps
- neck pain
- loss of balance
If you’ve eaten a food that’s been recalled because of a listeria outbreak, pay close attention and contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of these symptoms. If you experience a high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, confusion or sensitivity to light, seek care from a healthcare professional. These symptoms may be a sign of bacterial meningitis, a life-threatening side effect of listeriosis.
