There have been no confirmed illnesses due to the recalled products, but Listeria infections can be very serious or deadly. Invasive infections may spread beyond the gastrointestinal tract and cause meningitis (brain inflammation) or severe pregnancy complications.
In healthy adults, listeriosis may cause a fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, convulsions, and sometimes diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
