Listeria is one of the most common bacterium that causes food poisoning in America, but contrary to other bacterium, its effects can take a while to take hold.
It causes listeriosis, which is characterized by diarrhea and fever, within one to four weeks of infection, though the USDA FSIS says some people can take up to 70 days to show symptoms.
