Additional information for consumers Listeria monocytogenes is a microscopic organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled apples and developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical attention and inform their doctors of the possible exposure to the pathogen. It can take up to 70 days after exposure for symptoms to developConsequently, anyone who has eaten any of the recalled apples should monitor themselves for symptoms in the coming weeks. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infections can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant womenIn severe cases, the infection leads to death. A listeriosis outbreak in 2014-15 that was traced to whole apples from a California grower infected 35 people from 12 states, putting 34 of them in the hospital. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria contributed to at least three of the seven deaths that were linked to the outbreak, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
