No illnesses have been confirmed, but infections with Listeria monocytogenes can cause severe food poisoning, meningitis (brain inflammation), pregnancy complications, or death.
In healthy adults, the short-term symptoms of an infection may include a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, or abdominal pain, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
