If symptoms are severe or persistent, see a doctor
Listeria are bacteria that can cause the disease “listeriosis”.
In healthy adults, the infection is usually unremarkable or takes a harmless course with flu-like symptoms such as fever and muscle pain or vomiting and diarrhea, explains the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL).
In certain risk groups such as immunocompromised or elderly people and children, severe, sometimes fatal forms of listeriosis sometimes occur.
“People who develop severe or persistent symptoms and have eaten this food should seek medical help and point out a possible Listeria infection,” said Ilmenauer Wurstwaren GmbH & Co. KG. (ad)
