Contamination of listeria monocytogenes

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that is responsible for a disease called listeriosis. Listeria monocytogenes can be found in particular in dairy products but it can contaminate many food products.

The bacterium spreads everywhere in the environment and proves to be very resistant. Listeria can grow even in places with low temperatures like freezers or refrigerators. Listeriosis is potentially fatal in the event of complications.

WHO figures even confirm that this disease would be responsible for the death of many people in the world. The severe form of listeriosis is invasive listeriosis. It’s not just food poisoning, it can even affect a woman’s pregnancy.

Mass recall: risk of complications

Children and the elderly are also susceptible to suffer serious complications of listeriosis. People with problems with their immune system should not consume contaminated food.

A person who has just had an organ transplant falls into this category. A person with AIDS or cancer is also at risk for invasive listeriosis. At first, the symptoms of listeriosis are characterized by digestive disturbances.

The patient may vomit or have diarrhea often accompanied by fever and headache. He might even have muscle pain. If any of these symptoms appear, you should immediately talk to your doctor.

Moreover, if you have a contaminated product, you must speak to your doctor. Symptoms may not appear until a few days or a few weeks after ingesting the product.
