Foods contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes will not have an off flavor or aroma, and do not look or taste different. This pathogen causes an illness called listeriosis that can take up to 70 days to appear. Symptoms of listeriosis include a high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, and muscle aches that may be preceded by nausea and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only have a mild illness that appears to be the flu, but this infection can cause stillbirth and miscarriage. If you have eaten these cheeses and have been ill, see your doctor.
