According to the Food and Drug Administration website, Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and even fatal infections.

It’s especially dangerous for vulnerable people such as young children, the elderly or those with compromised immune systems.

Symptoms of the infection may include high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

While in pregnant women, Listeria infection can result in spontaneous abortions or stillbirth.
