Listeria monocytogenes Description
The following information has been provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- Listeria monocytogenes may cause an infection known as Listeriosis, a serious infection usually caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium.
- The disease primarily affects older adults, pregnant women, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems.
- Pregnant women are particularly susceptible as infections during pregnancy. Infection can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn.
- People without these risk factors can also be affected.
- Symptoms may include fever and muscle aches, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
- Almost everyone who is diagnosed with listeriosis has “invasive” infection, in which the bacteria spread beyond the gastrointestinal tract.
