Don't Cool Down by Eating Frozen Supermarket Vegetables

Different packs of frozen vegetables

Woolies said other frozen sweetcorn or vegetable products were unaffected.

There are concerns that the products may be contaminated with listeria, a potentially deadly food-borne bacteria.

Have you bought any of these frozen vegetables?

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 is found widely in the environment, but is particularly unsafe for pregnant women and their unborn babies, and can cause death in people with compromised immune systems.

Listeria is a life-threatening illness for certain people, particularly those over the age of 60.

Customers who have purchased the product can return it to their local store for a full refund. Symptoms in humans include gastroenteritis and flu-like symptoms.

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.

In February, contaminated rockmelons from a New South Wales rockmelon farm resulted in six deaths in NSW and Victoria and just last month, 21 people in South Australia were struck down with salmonella poisoning linked to alfalfa sprouts.

"While many people will follow cooking instructions properly, which should kill listeria bacteria, we are aware that some people eat frozen vegetables straight from the freezer and there is a risk of some people not cooking produce properly", he said.

Woolworths: Bell Farms Steam Veggie Carrot Corn and Broccoli 3pk 450g.

ALDI - Market Fare Corn Kernels 1kg QLD, VIC, WA and select NSW stores.

Only ALDI products with country of origin Belgium, Hungary or the United Kingdom are affected by the recall.
