Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an
uncommon but potentially serious disease marked by fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and
nausea. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis, but it can sometimes cause fatal infections
in infants, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis can also lead to
miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
Any consumers who believe they may have become ill after eating the product should contact
their health care provider. For more details about the product, call Belgrade Meat at 320-254-
