Listeria monocytogenes causes mild flu-like or gastrointestinal symptoms in most of its victims. But the very young, the elderly, people with compromised immune defenses, and pregnant women are at heightened risk of serious – even life-threatening – disease. Listeria monocytogenes may trigger premature births and stillbirths, and can infect infants in the womb.
