Eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon, but potentially fatal infectious disease. Listeriosis affects primarily pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and adults with weakened immune systems.  Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths.


Initial symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, fatigue, and sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions.
