About Listeria Poisoning:
Listeria monocytogenes, 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).

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.

About Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning:
Paralytic shellfish poisoning (“PSP”) is a serious and potentially life threatening food poisoning caused by consuming contaminated bivalve mollusks, specifically mussels, clams, oysters and scallops. These shellfish are filter feeders and, by definition, can accumulate neurotoxins, called Saxitoxin, as they feed. This neurotoxin poison cannot be tasted or smelled nor can it be deactivated by cleaning or cooking.

When mollusks contaminated with neurotoxins are consumed by humans, the resulting PSP can be fatal in extreme cases, but especially in immunocompromised individuals. Children are more susceptible to PSP injury. Symptoms can appear very quickly (typically from ten (10) to thirty (30) minutes after ingestion), and include severe nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and intense stomach pain. Other symptoms include tingling or burning in the lips, gums, tongue, face, neck, arms, fingers, legs and toes.

Shortness of breath, dry mouth, a feeling of asphyxia, confusion or slurred speech, and loss of coordination are also known symptoms. If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. If you experience these symptoms and suspect Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning, seek medical care on an emergency basis, taking the suspected contaminated food for further analysis.
