  • Listeria outbreak: Lidl recall MORE vegetables over deadly bacteria | Daily Star

Full details of different batches of frozen vegetables that have been recalled from United Kingdom supermarkets have been published by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) including batch numbers, pack size and best before date.

When you're cooking up a storm and you still have to put the pot of rice on the stove, it can be a bit of an effort.

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services has revealed that a Victorian may have contracted listeria as a result of consuming the recently recalled frozen vegetables.

Woolies said other frozen sweetcorn or vegetable products were unaffected.

So there were definitely people out there out there throwing bags of frozen rice into their trollies and saying thank you to the retailer for making their life easier.

Listeria is a rare bacteria responsible for the disease listeriosis.

Acting FSANZ CEO Peter May said pregnant women, elderly people and people whose immune systems are compromised such as cancer patients are particularly at risk and he has urged vulnerable people to check their freezers for the vegetables.

Greenyard, the company at the center of a frozen vegetable listeria contamination scare, says its top priority is the on-going recall initiative working with supermarkets to call back certain batches amid concern that they could contain the bacteria.

Fellow reader Zeila Hoare agreed, saying she would like to see the law change surrounding the exportation of fresh produce: "We should be lobbying the government to make it mandatory that we supply all our fruits and vegetables here and only the excess goes overseas".

Woolworths on Monday removed a product believed to be contaminated with listeria from its shelves.

Symptoms could include headache, fever, tiredness and aches and pains.

Some of the products that have been recalled.

In recent weeks, Aldi, Lidl, Iceland, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose have all recalled frozen vegetables due to the risk of Listeria monocytogenes contamination. It can lead to sepsis and meningitis (infection and inflammation of membranes surrounding the brain). To verify the safety of our food products, we implement additional monitoring where we independently have our food products tested randomly.

"The products affected contain a particularly risky strain of listeria and are being recalled as a precautionary measure to ensure consumers are protected, but particularly vulnerable populations", May said.
