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.
