Symptoms of a Listeria infection include a headache that is usually severe, a fever that is usually high, stiff neck, muscle aches, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions. Sometimes these symptoms are preceded by an upset stomach, cramps and diarrhea. Usually, Listeria symptoms develop within two weeks of exposure but sometimes can take as long as 70 days before they appear. Among pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriage and stillbirth.
