As far as i know your body will hopefully expell the listeria on its own...it is certainly a type of food poisoning. Lysteria is in almost all of the air we breath and just about all organic based foods ...there are at least two kinds of lysteria...the bad one is lysteria monocytogonies. If you have a compromised system then you run a greater chance of getting sick.....most treatments for mild cases is time and treatment of the symptoms......ten or more years ago there was big outbreak in some cheese sold in California....I am pretty sure that as many as 9 people died in that outbreak.
It has been around for ever and occurs natuarlly....but it has only been in the last 10 to 15 years that science discovered it.
I would think if you have gotten over it and your doctor is not worried you should be fine and may have now built some resitance to it.
