However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and
nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as
serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems,
such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing
chemotherapy.
