Increased Cases of Listeriosis this Summer

The New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory has identified an uptick in cases of listeriosis this summer compared to recent years. Many of these have been sheep or goats showing neurologic signs. The most likely route of exposure is feed contaminated with the infectious organism. Hay or other feed that has spoiled after getting wet is a common source of infection. The bacterium that causes listeriosis, Listeria monocytogenes, can be infectious to people, as well. If you suspect listeriosis in your animals, contact a veterinarian. For more detailed information about listeriosis, please see https://www.cfsph.iastate.edu/FastFacts/pdfs/listeriosis_F.PDF and https://www.cfsph.iastate.edu/Factsheets/pdfs/listeriosis.pdf. If you have questions about listeriosis in humans, contact your healthcare provider.
