About Listeria infections
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections. Anyone who has been exposed to the recalled product should seek medical attention.
Also, anyone who has eaten any of the recalled product should monitor themselves for symptoms during the coming weeks because it can take up to 70 days after exposure to Listeria for symptoms of listeriosis to develop.
Symptoms of Listeria infections include nausea, vomiting, persistent fever, muscle pains, severe headache, and stiffness in the neck. Listeria infections can mimic other diseases and require specific laboratory tests.
Pregnant and elderly women, children and young people, as well as patients with cancer, are at greater risk for serious illness, life-threatening infections, and other complications. Even though pregnant women with flu-like symptoms may not experience serious complications, infections infected can cause premature birth, infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth.
