The CDC says the recent outbreak of Listeria infection can be traced to cooked meat



(WJW)-The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that Listeria infections are occurring in multiple states, which they say can be traced to cooked meat.

At some point between August and October, about 10 people became ill and hospitalized, and one of them died of the disease. According to reports, the affected person is between 40 and 80 years old and lives in Florida, Massachusetts or New York. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that out of ten infected people, nine said they ate cooked food before they became ill.

Currently, no specific brand of meat has been mentioned.

Listeria usually affects people with compromised immune systems, the elderly, and those who are pregnant.

Health officials warned that deli meat can sometimes be infected with Listeria, and reminded people to cook deli meat before ingesting food and always discard deli meat that has been opened after five days in the refrigerator.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), together with other government health organizations, continue to monitor the current epidemic, and will update the public as soon as they learn more.
