I am 8 weeks pregnant I went to see

Patient

Q: I am 8 weeks pregnant. I went to see my OB yesterday after a full night of severe cramping and mild spotting. Growth and heartbeat were good on US. I'm still having mild cramping and found out today that I consumed hummus the afternoon before my symptoms that had been recalled due to listeria contamination. My OB says that unless I'm febrile or having diarrhea not to worry. Based on my research of peer reviewed and quality journal articles, I could be asymptomatic and the fetus still be infected due to the crazy motility of listeria. My question is, is my OB right or should I seek a second opinion?
