Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and
sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others
with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only
short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea,
abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and
stillbirths among pregnant women.
