Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria) is a bacterium that causes foodborne illness; disease caused by the ingestion of Listeria bacteria is called listeriosis. Listeria can enter the body through a normal, intact gastrointestinal tract.
Once in the body, Listeria can travel through the bloodstream; it invades and grows best in the central nervous system in immunocompromised people, causing meningitis and / or encephalitis (brain infection). In pregnant women, the fetus may be infected with Listeria, resulting in spontaneous abortion, stillbirths or sepsis (infection of the blood) in infancy.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that mainly affects the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, as well as pregnant women and newborn babies. Less frequently, people outside of these risk groups are affected.
Listeriosis (disease caused by Listeria) may cause fever, muscle pain, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and seizures sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. People in high risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months of consuming contaminated food should see a doctor and notify the health care provider of the consumption of contaminated food. To see, www.about-listeria.com.
