What is the average onset time for Listeria monocytogenes?
By onset time, do you mean time until onset or how long symptoms last?
I like birds.

I mean how long it takes for symptoms to appear after ingesting the disease.

I'm not Tailsfan101, but according to this source the onset time for listeria is 9-48 hrs for gastrointestinal symptoms and 2-6 weeks for the invasive disease.

Oops, I must have used the wrong source :P, I believe you get to ask the next question!

I got my information fro this source, but it might be outdated.
