Listeria Food Poisoning

The bacterium Listeria monocytogenes is found in soil and water. It tends to contaminate foods from animals, such as meats and unpasteurized dairy products.

The bacteria can live on surfaces for years. They're killed by thorough cooking. However, contamination of food processing plants can spread the bacteria to cooked foods. Moreover, listeria can grow and multiply in the refrigerator.

Most people with intact immune systems do not suffer severe listeria infection. However, disease caused by listeria -- listeriosis -- can be very severe. Each year, the CDC estimates there are 1,600 cases in the U.S., with 260 deaths.

Listeriosis usually begins with diarrhea or other gut symptoms and progresses to fever and muscle aches. Symptoms vary from person to person, but may include headache, stiff neck, loss of balance, and convulsions.

Infections during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or dangerous infection of the newborn.
