Symptoms of a Listeria infection

Symptoms of a Listeria infection, called listeriosis, include high fever, stiff neck, other muscle stiffness, confusion, loss of balance, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal cramps. Usually, these symptoms develop within two weeks of eating contaminated food. But sometimes they can take as long as 70 days to appear. Consumers who ate the recalled ice cream should monitor themselves for symptoms and see a doctor right away if they develop.
