About Listeria Infection
Food contaminated with L. monocytogenes does not look or smell spoiled, but can still cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections. Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products and develops symptoms of listeria infection should seek medical attention and inform their doctor of possible listeria exposure.
In addition, anyone who has consumed any of the recalled products should self-monitor as it can take up to 70 days after exposure to listeria to develop symptoms of listeriosis.
Symptoms of Listeria infection may include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and neck stiffness. Specific laboratory tests are needed to diagnose Listeria infection, which can mimic other diseases.
Populations such as pregnant women, the elderly, young children and cancer patients with weakened immune systems are especially vulnerable to serious illness, life-threatening infections and other complications. While infected pregnant women may experience only mild flu-like symptoms, their infection can lead to premature birth, infection of the newborn, and even stillbirth.
