The Centers for Disease Control and prevention has linked cooked meat sold in several States to a serious foodborne disease known to have killed at least one life.According to the agency, a total of 10 cases were reported under the epidemic, all of which require hospitalization. At present, experts have linked foodborne diseases to Italian-flavored sausages and other meat.
There are many types of foodborne diseases, some of which are more dangerous than others. Unfortunately, this new outbreak involves one of the more dangerous pathogens, a bacterium called Listeria. When consumed, the bacteria can cause severe infections called Listeria, although it mainly affects newborns, the elderly, pregnant women and anyone with a weak immune system.
People infected with this bacterium may experience various symptoms, including fever and diarrhea, muscle soreness, fatigue, neck stiffness, difficulty in maintaining balance, convulsions, headache, etc. when a woman is pregnant, it is easy to induce premature birth, abortion and stillbirth.
In a new notice of investigation released on Friday, October 23, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said there was epidemiological evidence that the disease was caused by cooked meats such as prepackaged and sliced sausages, smoked ham and sausages sold at cooked food counters. However, based on interviews with nine survivors, no common supplier or specific type of meat has been identified.
At present, New York, Florida and Massachusetts have been associated with the outbreak of Listeria infection reports.
