Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. In some people, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and those with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria could cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems.
