Symptoms of listeriosis infection

According to the FDA, there are a range of symptoms for listeriosis, the infection often caused by Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Depending on the severity of the illness, symptoms may last from days to several weeks. Mild symptoms may include a fever, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

If the more severe form of listeriosis develops, symptoms can include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions. For the very young, the elderly, and the immune-compromised, listeriosis can result in death.

Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women, the FDA said.
