Listeriosis is a rare and serious illness caused by eating food contaminated with Listeria. Symptoms of listeriosis include fever and muscle aches. Although listeriosis is not necessarily fatal, it can be life-threatening to people with compromised immune systems, people with certain chronic medical conditions, newborns, and elderly people. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriage, stillbirth or serious illness when a contaminated product is ingested by a pregnant woman.
