Frozen vegetables recalled from Aussie supermarkets over contamination fears

Frozen vegetables recalled from Aussie supermarkets over contamination fears

"On 6 July the affected companies undertook precautionary action".

Australian consumers have been instructed to return the products to the point of purchase for a refund and seek medical advice if concerned about their health. "We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause".

Food Standards Australia and New Zealand have recalled nine products - a mix of corn, carrot, pea and broccoli ranges - that originated from Britain, Belgium and Hungary.

Foodborne bacteria such as listeria can be spread by cross-contamination, such as when raw and cooked foods are stored together. Symptoms may include headaches, fever, tiredness and aches and pains.

It is particularly risky for pregnant women and their unborn babies, and can cause death in people with compromised immune systems. The Agency says that frozen sweetcorn is the likely source of an ongoing outbreak of listeriosis affecting five European countries including the UK.

She said: "The best way to prevent listeriosis is to practise good food hygiene".

"Experts used whole genome sequencing to identify the food source, which initially was thought to be limited to frozen corn".

Same old, same old as Nadal wins another five-set nail-biter
Only in this last 18 months has he been able to restore his glory, with successive French Open titles, and a US Open victory. After seven weeks out with a serious knee injury, many doubted if Nadal would regain his crown as the "King of Clay".

The number of reported cases per week has decreased since implicated products were recalled in March 2018. "This suggests that the strains have persisted in the processing plant despite the cleaning and disinfection procedures that were carried out". However, listeria can also be found in ready to eat foods that have been contaminated during processing.

The patient - who had another serious illness - died earlier this year, Victoria's health department said. It can lead to sepsis and meningitis (infection and inflammation of membranes surrounding the brain). The company operates in 27 countries.

The rice mix contains frozen sweetcorn sourced from the Greenyard Factory in Hungary.

In recent weeks, Aldi, Lidl, Iceland, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose have all recalled frozen vegetables due to the risk of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The food chain reportedly said its food products are independently tested at random.

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

"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.
