Listeria Food Poisoning (Listeriosis)

Listeriosis is a commonly reported form of food poisoning caused by the ingestion of the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. Unlike most foodborne pathogens, listeria can grow in foods stored in the refrigerator, making it hardier and more resistant to adverse conditions than most types of food poisoning. Listeria is typically spread through contact with infected hands or countertops in the process of food preparation. Those at greatest risk of developing listeriosis include children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. Signs and symptoms of listeriosis in adults may include:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • cramps
  • diarrhea
  • severe headache
  • constipation
  • fever

In babies, symptoms may include:

  • loss of appetite
  • lethargy
  • jaundice
  • vomiting
  • rash
  • difficulty breathing
