Most people infected with Listeria develop symptoms which include:
- Stomach cramps
- Severe headache
Most illnesses occur within 1 to 4 weeks after eating the contaminated food. People that have underlying GI issues may be affected more severely, as well as immunocompromised and elderly people.
In older adults and people with immunocompromising conditions, the most common clinical presentations are invasive infections, such as sepsis, meningitis, and meningoencephalitis. People can also experience focal infections, including septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, prosthetic graft infections, and infections of sites inside the chest and abdomen or of the skin and eye. Less commonly, otherwise healthy young people may also develop invasive listeriosis.
Listeriosis during pregnancy is typically a relatively mild “flu-like” illness. Some pregnant women with Listeria infection have no symptoms. Although severe disease in the mother is rare, infection during pregnancy can result in miscarriage, stillbirth, preterm labor, and sepsis or meningitis in the neonate.
These lawsuits are not part of a class action or multi-district litigation (MDL). Each case is unique and remains separate from other cases. The statute of limitations to sue may be only one or two years after the purchase or consumption of the recalled products, so we urge victims to seek legal counsel immediately. We are demanding that the food production companies reimburse our clients for their doctor’s bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
