Product recall due to the presence of Listeria
Listeria monocytogenes is the microorganism that is responsible for listeriosis. The product recall alerts consumers toact as soon as possible if the following symptoms occur:
- Fever accompanied (or not) by headache
If a person has consumed contaminated food by Listeria, it will be necessary to consult a doctor immediately. Symptoms may not show up for eight weeks after ingesting the product. However, this disease can have serious complications in the patient.
The risks are more serious in people with weak immune systems. Fragile people such as children and the elderly are the most at risk. In addition to neurological complications, listeriosis can also cause loss of a fetus in pregnant women.
Given the danger represented by Listeria monocytogene, it is important not to consume products that the bacterium has contaminated. So don’t eat these batches of matches of chicken that are the subject of a product recall.
