Listeria can lead to an infection called ‘listeriosis’. According to the NHS, it usually goes away on its own, but can cause serious problems for some people. For most people, listeriosis is mild and gets better in a few days.
Despite being mild for most, some people are more vulnerable to the infection. This includes those aged over 65-years-old, pregnant women and their unborn children, babies under one month old and people with a weakened immune system.
According to the Food Standards Agency (FSA) “Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.”
The FSA has also issued advice, saying: “If you have bought any of the above products do not eat them. Instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund (with or without a receipt).”
