The appearance of the disease lasts 3-90 days! The PIH provides information on

The Institute of Public Health has provided information about the listeriosis disease, which is caused by the bacterium of the same name, after the AKU announced that the pathogen was found in Wudi sausages. The PIH informs that so far no person has been confirmed with the disease.

The incubation period of the bacterium until the appearance of signs of the disease lasts from 3 to 90 days.

"Mild signs of the disease are more like those of a seasonal virus, high fever and gastro-intestinal problems. But for people with weak immunity, including pregnant women, consumption of contaminated sausages can be fatal", said Artan Simaku, specialist at ISHP for A2CNN.

Epidemiologists call on citizens who have consumed these products to contact their family doctor if they have symptoms and concerns.

Listeriosis disease occurs only in individuals who have consumed contaminated products and is not contagious to other people. The bacterium can also be found in vegetables and other products, so it is recommended to wash them well and cook them at a high temperature.

But in the case of sausages, they should not be consumed until a second notice, while for products similar to them, the expiration date should be respected.
