Listeria isn’t typically dangerous for young and healthy individuals. It can be a different story though for children, the elderly, those with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women. It’s not unheard of for a Listeria contamination to lead to a stillbirth for pregnant women. Fortunately, so far no illnesses have been reported related to this recall.
