Listeria and food poisoning


Listeria monocytogenes is especially harmful for pregnant women and the over sixties. It is found in soft cheeses, especially those made with unpasteurized milk, patés both vegetable and meat and butter. Listeria usually produces flu like symptoms in the sufferer.  Listeria can multiply at fairly low temperatures and so can colonize foods that are stored in the fridge for longer than others.
