Symptoms of a Listeria Infection
Symptoms of a Listeria infection usually develop within two weeks of eating contaminated food but sometimes they can take as long as two months to develop. These symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, other muscle stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
