Throw the salads away in a double bagged package in a secure trash can or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund. Clean your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution and wash your hands after you discard them.

Symptoms of listeriosis include a high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, and nausea and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only be mildly ill with what seems like the flu, but they can suffer miscarriage and stillbirth. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
