What is Listeria?

The bacteria Listeria monocytogenes can cause a severe type of food poisoning known as “listeriosis” when people eat contaminated food. Not everyone who ingests Listeria gets sick, but those who do often suffer major complications that require hospitalization, such as bloodstream infections, meningitis, encephalitis, or death.

Listeria Food Poisoning

Food poisoning with Listeria is most serious for older adults, young children, and women who are pregnant. Although pregnant women often show no symptoms, Listeria infections often cause premature birth, miscarriage, or an infected newborn. About 22% of Listeria infections in the third trimester result in stillbirth.

  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Muscle pain
