Listeriosis – updated guidance for pregnant and vulnerable patients

UKHSA has updated their advice on high-risk foods for certain patients, where there is a specific concern about Listeria monocytogenes.

NHS.UK has been updated the information for pregnant and vulnerable individuals to reflect the risk of listeriosis from smoked fish by amending the ‘foods to avoid in pregnancy’ webpage, as well as the webpage on ‘listeriosis’, which also includes details on specific actions people can take when handling, storing and preparing foods to reduce their risk of listeriosis.
