The CDC stated that 1,600 people get listeria each year in the USA and 260 directly related deaths.
SYMPTOMS: Pets with listeria can suffer from diarrhea, fever, anorexia, muscle, respiratory problems, even death. With light infection and no symptoms, listeria can be transferred to humans. By handling food with listeria or using unclean surfaces that contaminated food has touched, is another way to pass listeria. Pregnant women, newborns, senior citizens and people with compromised immune systems are most vulnerable to listeria.
