“Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogenic bacteria that can cause foodborne illness. Symptoms may include fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea,” the agency added.

According to FSAI, in rare cases, the bacterial infection can be more serious and have serious consequences. Pregnant women, infants, people with weakened immune systems, including the elderly, are among those more vulnerable to Listeria monocytogenes.

“The incubation period averages three weeks, but can range from 3 to 70 days,” FSAI said.
