Listeria monocytogene is a bacterium of animal origin, responsible, in humans, for listeriosis, a rare but serious infection.
In France, specifies Medisite, the foods most frequently contaminated with Listeria are:
This infection is manifested by several symptoms, such as headaches, fever, nausea, vomiting or even meningoencephalitis. Pregnant women are particularly at risk. Listeriosis can indeed lead to in-utero death, adds Medisite.
