What Is Listeria Infection (Listeriosis)?

Food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes can give rise to an illness, known as listeriosis. Pregnant females are much more susceptible to infection than other humans. If a pregnant woman becomes infected, she has a higher risk of delivering her baby early, the newborn baby has a risk of infection, and there is also a risk of death for the newborn.

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) says that listeriosis is a public health problem in America.

The majority of listeriosis cases are non-invasive. Patients with non-invasive listeriosis may experience fever, muscle pains, and diarrhea.

Invasive listeriosis - a serious medical condition - is more likely to occur in patients with weakened immune systems. Patients have to be hospitalized, where the infection is treated with antibiotics. Approximately 35% of patients with invasive listeriosis do not survive, because of complications.
