It seems that every week there is another food recall; the latest is a deli meat recall at Walmart stores, which affects 380,000 pounds of meat. There are fears that the food has been contaminated with bacteria, which in some cases could cause a fatal disease.
According to a CNN Blogs report the bacteria is called Listeria monocytogenes, which inspectors in Georgia found in a meat sample. Thankfully there have not been any reports of illness.
The symptoms of listeriosis, brought on by the bacteria can cause headaches, nausea, high fever and a stiff neck. Usually healthy people will not suffer from the fatal disease.
Those who are pregnant need to be aware that Listeriosis can cause stillbirths and miscarriages, so you need to make certain that you do not any of the meat that is listed for you here.
