Listeria is a common organism found in nature. Consumption of food contaminated with
Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal
disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high
fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause
miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those
with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV
infection or undergoing chemotherapy.
