1.Why are Pregnant Hispanic women even more likely than non-Hispanic pregnant women to get a Listeria infection ?
Pregnant Hispanic women are even more likely than non-Hispanic pregnant women to get a Listeria infection. This is probably caused by eating traditional soft cheese, such as “queso fresco,” and other traditional foods made with milk that is unpasteurized.
2. Listeria does not pose a risk for an unborn child or a pregnancy when the pregnant mother only feels mild flu-like symptoms.
While a pregnant woman may have only a mild, flu-like illness, or may not feel sick at all, listeriosis can lead to miscarriage, death of the unborn baby, a low-birth weight infant, health problems for the newborn, or even infant death. That’s why reducing risks from Listeria is so important.
3. What are three very simple things you can do to help prevent illness from Listeria? Check all that apply.
1. Chill at the Right Temperature
2. Use Ready-to-Eat Foods Quickly!
3. Keep the Refrigerator Clean
4. Listeria is the 3rd leading cause of death from food poisoning, and can grow at refrigerator temperatures.
Certain foods – including ready-to-eat refrigerated foods, unpasteurized (raw) milk, and foods made with unpasteurized milk – often may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (LM), the third leading cause of death from food poisoning. These foodborne bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures and can cause an illness that in most healthy people is unpleasant but not serious.
