Raw seafood regularly carries Listeria as it is ubiquitous in the environment. Cold smoked salmon is particularly at risk. Cooked seafood can become contaminated during processing.
Listeria causes Listeriosis, the leading cause of death due to foodborne illness. 1 in 5 people die as a result. People at risk are the young, the old and the immunocompromised. It can also cause still births.
