About Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning):
Listeriosis is a serious infection that can develop after eating food contaminated by bacteria, typically a strain called Listeria monocytogenes. In most people, Listeriosis is mild and causes flu-like symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea. In more rare cases and especially in those with compromised immune systems (including pregnant women), the infection can spread to other parts of the body and cause serious complications, such as meningitis (infection of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord) or foetal death.

The bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning) most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges). You can learn about Listeriosis from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IScAKJ
