Listeria is a bacteria that can cause foodborne infection. The risk of contamination with Listeria is small, but the consequences can be serious. Especially pregnant women should be careful because it can lead to that group to miscarriage or premature birth. Listeria is found mainly in long kept chilled products that are eaten without heating. Risk products are raw milk soft cheese, pre-packed smoked fish and raw animal products.
