Information about Listeria

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that causes serious and sometimes fatal infections in vulnerable populations. Those at the highest risk include the very old, very young, and immune-compromised. Furthermore, Listeria contamination is especially dangerous to pregnant women as it can cause miscarriage or stillbirth.

Signs and symptoms of Listeria exposure vary in their intensity and may be mild for healthy people. They include high fever, headache, nausea, stiffness, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Anyone experiencing these symptoms who has eaten this product should contact their doctor or another healthcare professional.
