What is Listeria?

 

Listeria is the name of a bacteria that can cause a deadly infection (Listeriosis) when it contaminates food like kale, melons, deli meats, and unpasteurized dairy products. While contracting a Listeriosis infection is not high, the mortality rate is very high, with 20-30% of cases being fatal. Listeria is in the headlines frequently due to the impact it has, not only on those infected but on the business Listeria has contaminated. It means something went very wrong, somewhere in your processing.
