The government agency has not received any reports of people getting ill. However, Listeria monocytogenes could cause a person to catch listeriosis. The disease is rare, but can sometimes be fatal. Healthy individuals do not usually catch listeriosis. The elderly, the very young, pregnant women, and people with a weakened immune system are at a higher risk for serious complications. Listeriosis can cause miscarriages and stillbirths. Symptoms of listeriosis include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, and nausea. Anyone that could be ill with these symptoms should consult with a doctor.
