What is the problem?

Cheese is one of the most common sources of food poisoning outbreaks due to Listeria monocytogenes. Unlike most bacteria, Listeria is common in dairy environments and it can grow in a refrigerator or deli counter.

Soft cheeses made from unpasteurized milk are 50 to 160 times more likely to cause Listeria infection, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). However, even pasteurized cheese made in unsanitary conditions can spread Listeria.

What is Listeriosis?

Listeriosis is an infection caused by Listeria monocytogenes. Infections are rare, but they are often very serious because the bacteria is highly invasive. Complications are often life-threatening for unborn babies of pregnant women, young children, older adults, and people with vulnerable immune systems.

Symptoms of Listeriosis

  • Fever
  • Muscle aches
  • Diarrhea
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms
  • Invasive infection
  • Bacterial meningitis (brain inflammation)
