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.

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. Contact the retailer for a refund or replacement. Wash your hands, contaminated preparation surfaces, cutlery and serving dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry. Contact your MD immediately if you experience Listeriosis symptoms.

You can learn more about Listeriosis from the National Health Service at
