What Is Listeria Monocytogenes?
Listeria Monocytogenes are toxic organisms that are fatal to both humans and animals. Symptoms such as aches, fever, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting can be commonly found upon infection. The consequences of infection can lead to meningitis and abortion.
It is relatively easy to become infected by Listeria; however, vulnerable people such as young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people who suffer from weakened immune systems can be susceptible to catching it.
Listeria Monocytogenes can infect animals as well.
There is a significant risk of infection when handling the products. It is always advised to wash your hands thoroughly after contact and significantly wipe down surfaces that have been in contact with the product.
If you have any of the symptoms we have previously described, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible. If you believe your pet has become infected, consult your veterinarian.
