Listeria, or listeria monocytogenes, is an organism with the potential to cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail, the elderly, and others with weak immune systems. The organism can also cause short-term symptoms in healthy individuals including high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrea. Listeria can also cause stillbirths and miscarriages in pregnant women.
