According to the Food and Drug Administration, listeria symptoms usually start within two weeks after eating contaminated food, but they may start as early as the same day or as late as 10 weeks after. Mild symptoms may include fever, severe headache, muscle aches, nausea, tiredness, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea.

Listeria can cause serious or fatal infections in children, elderly people or individuals who have weakened immune systems.
