Listeria is a type of bacteria that can cause a serious foodborne illness called listeriosis. It's commonly found in soil, water, and some animals, but can contaminate a variety of foods, including deli meats, seafood, soft cheeses, and raw vegetables.
Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, nausea and diarrhea. In some rare cases, it can lead to severe complications, such as meningitis or blood infection. It's particularly dangerous for pregnant women, newborns, seniors, and individuals with compromised immune systems.
If you suspect you may have listeriosis, it's important to seek medical attention immediately. Treatment typically involves antibiotics, and early detection can prevent serious illness.
