Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, which is a potentially fatal disease.  Healthy adults rarely contract listeriosis, but individuals with a weakened immune system, such as children, elderly, those undergoin chemotherapy or infected with HIV, can be very susceptible to the sometimes fatal infections.  Listeriosis can also lead to miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.  Symptoms of listeria food poisoning can include:

  • High Fever
  • Severe Headache
  • Stiff Neck
  • Nausea

The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline is available Monday through Friday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at (888) 674-6854. 


Food poisoning lawsuits are being reviewed throughout the United States on behalf of individuals who have been diagnosed with listeriosis after eating one of these products.
