The pet food is facing a recall after possibly containing Listeria monocytogenes. 

Side Effects of Listeria Monocytogenes

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that can cause serious illness in humans and animals alike. It's particularly concerning because it can lead to listeriosis, a potentially severe infection characterized by symptoms such as fever, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea.

In more vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, pregnant women, infants, and those with weakened immune systems, listeriosis can lead to more severe complications, including meningitis and even death.
