Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products and developed symptoms of listeria infection should seek medical treatment and tell their doctors about potential listeria exposure.

Also, anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products should monitor themselves for symptoms during the coming weeks because it takes up to 70 days after exposure to listeria to develop symptoms of listeriosis. may take time.

Symptoms of Listeria infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and a stiff neck. Diagnosis of Listeria infection requires specific laboratory tests, which can mimic other diseases.

People with weakened immune systems such as pregnant women, the elderly, young children and cancer patients are especially at risk of serious diseases, life-threatening infections and other complications. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, their infection can also lead to premature labor, infection of the newborn or stillbirth.
