Listeria, a deadly bacteria often linked to food poisoning incidents, has the potential to severely impact pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and even some adults. If you’ve exhibited any of the following symptoms recently, it is recommended that you follow up with your primary care physician IMMEDIATELY:
- High fever
- Muscle aches
- Stiff neck
- Loss of balance
While most individuals infected by the listeria bacteria will exhibit symptoms within a few days, for some it can take over two months for symptoms to show. If you’re uncertain whether you’re infected with listeria or not, it is recommended that you get a blood test to determine for sure.
Miami Herald reports:
The massive listeria-inspired recall by Mann Packing across the United States and Canada earlier this week is even broader than originally reported. Store brands from Walmart, Aldi, Safeway/Albertson’s, H-E-B and others are affected.
While the company’s media release detailed the full breadth of the recall, the original recall notice the company wrote for the FDA website listed only the products released under the Mann brand. Over 20 of those brands were pulled in the United States and Canada after Canadian inspectors found listeria in a sampling of Mann-produced product.
