Common symptoms of Listeria infection include fever, muscle aches and tiredness, but other symptoms like headaches, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and seizures can also occur in more extreme cases.
Listeriosis is not typically life-threatening, but it can be especially dangerous if you are pregnant, immunocompromised or age 65 or older. Listeriosis can cause pregnancy complications, including pregnancy loss or premature birth. It can also cause severe illness or death in newborns.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms after eating any of the listed products, call your health care provider immediately. Listeria can survive at refrigerated temperatures and can easily spread to other foods and surfaces, so for your safety, carefully follow the FDA's safe handling and cleaning procedures if your kitchen or appliances may be contaminated.
