So far no cases of Listeria poisoning have been reported, although symptoms of a Listeria infection can take as long as 70 days to appear. Listeria causes a very serious infection. The symptoms of Listeria poisoning include fever, nausea, diarrhea, headache, stiff neck, and muscle aches. Listeria infections can be especially serious in persons with certain risk factors, including people with HIV/AIDS, children, the elderly, and women who are pregnant. If you or a loved one ate any recalled frozen corn and began to develop symptoms, contact a medical professional.
