Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young
children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The recalled apples should not be consumed. Instead, the apples should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.
