Severe, sometimes fatal, forms of listeriosis occur in certain risk groups, for example in older or immunocompromised individuals and infants.

For pregnant women, the bacteria “pose a particular risk, since the unborn child may be infected with stillbirth, premature birth and newborn listeriosis, or inflammation of the brain and meninges and sepsis (blood poisoning). These forms of disease are fatal in about 30% of cases, ”said the LGL.
