As explained by the National Institute of Health
“Listeriosis can take on various clinical forms, from acute febrile gastroenteritis more typical of food poisoning, which occurs within a few hours of ingestion (and is self-limiting in healthy subjects), to invasive or systemic. Pregnant women usually experience a flu-like syndrome with fever and other non-specific symptoms, such as fatigue and aches. However, infections acquired during pregnancy can have serious consequences for the fetus (fetal death, abortion, premature birth, or congenital listeriosis). In immuno-compromised and elderly adults, listeriosis can cause meningitis, encephalitis, severe septicemia. These clinical manifestations are treatable with antibiotics, but the prognosis in severe cases is often poor "
