Listeria Food Poisoning (Listeriosis)
Listeriosis is a rare but serious foodborne illness caused by eating foods contaminated with the Listeria monocytogenes bacterium. Infections are particularly dangerous to pregnant women, the elderly, and those with impaired immune systems. Most cases of listeriosis in healthy people are mild and may go unnoticed. However, in certain cases, a listeria infection can lead to adverse health complications including blood infections (septicemia) and inflammation of the membranes and fluid surrounding the brain (meningitis).
Signs and symptoms of listeriosis may include:
- Muscle aches
- Stiff neck
- Loss of balance
