What is Listeriosis?

Listeria food poisoning, or listeriosis, is a severe foodborne illness caused by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) [2]. Though anyone can get the illness, those at the greatest risk for listeriosis infection include pregnant women, children, elderly people, and individuals with weakened immune systems. Signs and symptoms of listeriosis include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Stiff neck
  • Muscle aches

These symptoms can take up to 70 days to appear, CDC said. If you ate recalled hard-boiled egg products and are now experiencing any of these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.
