Listeria is nothing to be trifled with. An old friend of mine contracted it on Mothers Day 1999 -- her baby was due in September but she went into premature labor and delivered the day after she ate the infected potato salad. Her little girl is a healthy, happy 4-yr-old now, but she almost didn't make it being born so early. And their first years with her were fraught with medical problems, RSV, asthma, you name it.

Listeria can also have terrible effects on the elderly and very small children. So watch out for this, particularly with huge family feasts this weekend.
