Symptoms of listeriosis, the illnesses caused by this bacteria, can take up to 70 days to appear. Symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only feel ill with what seems like a mild case of the flu, but listeriosis can cause stillbirth, miscarriage, and premature labor. If you do feel sick, call your doctor.
