How Long Does Myalgia Associated With Listeria Last
I ate a product since recalled b/c of possible Listeria Monocytogenes contamination. How long till I know I'm in the clear in terms of getting sick?
Listeria infection: Healthy people rarely become ill from listeria infection, but the disease can be fatal to unborn babies and newborns. People who have weakened immune systems also are at higher risk of life-threatening complications. Prompt antibiotic treatment can help curb the effects of listeria infection.

I am 13 weeks pregnant and ate queso fresco accidentally last night. What can I do to ensure my baby doesn't contract listeria?
Yum yum...: Queso fresco is quite delicious (mexican cheese made from raw milk) and only causes problem if it is contaminated.

Listeria is a serious infection, but rather rare...7/million in us...For now, just monitor closely...If fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea etc..Consult doc...Otherwise, should be ok... Good luck. ...Read more
