In brief: No

Listeria meningitis is usually contracted from eating foods contaminated with listeria.
A person with a compromised immune system and infants are most at risk.

In brief: Very unlikely

Listeriosis (listeria infection) is primarily a foodborne disease.
Exception will be an infection in fetus and newborn infant transfered from their mothers.
