  • Deadly bacteria fears: Supermarkets recall frozen vegetables

Food Standards Australia New Zealand issued the recall on Monday which led to people checking their freezers for the products which may be contaminated.

Aldi, Lidl, Iceland, Sainsbury's, Tesco, and Waitrose have recalled frozen vegetable packages, including packets of sweetcorn and mixed vegetables, because they could contain listeria monocytogenes, which can cause listeriosis.

The factory has been implicated as the potential source of a listeria outbreak in Europe.

However, Woolworths is voluntarily recalling this product as a precautionary measure, on the global instruction of the Hungarian Food Safety Agency.

So the Woolies uncooked savoury rice definitely had its market.

All of the affected supermarket products have been made by Greenyard Frozen UK even though many of them are sold as supermarket own brand products.

The food chain reportedly said its food products are independently tested at random. Thorough cooking ensures that the product is safe.

Food Standards Australia New Zealand ordered a recall of various varieties from Woolies, IGA, and ALDI.

Customers who have purchased the product, should return the product to their local store for a full refund.

Acting FSANZ chief executive Peter May said pregnant women, people whose immune systems were compromised (eg cancer patients) and elderly people were most at risk. However, listeria can also be found in ready to eat foods that have been contaminated during processing.

ALDI - Only products with country of origin of Belgium, United Kingdom or Hungary.

Listeriosis is a rare infection caused by the bacteria listeria.

The NSW Government's Food Authority confirmed the recall in a statement this afternoon.

"If you are a healthy adult you'd have to eat a lot of frozen vegetables to make you sick because most of the potentially unsafe bacteria is killed by the acid in your stomach", Mr Kennedy said.
