What Is Listeriosis?
Unfortunately, listeriosis seems to be commonplace in the American food chain. There have been many recalls this year due to its potential contamination. According to the Centers for Disease Control,
Listeriosis is a serious infection usually caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. An estimated 1,600 people get listeriosis each year, and about 260 die. The infection is most likely to sicken pregnant women and their newborns, adults aged 65 or older, and people with weakened immune systems.
