Countdown withdraws frozen veggie product after Australian recall

Countdown withdraws frozen veggie product after Australian recall

Meanwhile, the UK's Food Standards Agency says consumers who have bought any of the affected products should not eat them.

The European outbreak of listeria in corn and possibly other frozen vegetables has been ongoing since 2015, according to the European Food Safety Authority.

A statement issued by the company last Wednesday said it had chosen to recall products from the plant in response to a decision by Hungary's Food Safety Agency.

The latest food scandal to hit the United Kingdom involves supposed nutritional good guys the vegetables, who, instead of being nice and giving us vitamins and fibre, are now also delivering potentially fatal listeria infections to our overwhelmed freezer compartments.

Australians are being told to check their freezers and destroy the products or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

It is the first case in Australia linked to the vegetables.

Supermarket chain Woolworths sold the recalled product, Bell Farms Steam Veggie Carrot Corn and Broccoli 450g.

Listeria in tainted melon killed seven people in Australia earlier this year.

The specific packets that are of risk of listeria contamination include mixed carrot, corn, broccoli, peas packets stocked under three brands: Black & Gold, Market Fare and Bell Farms.

It can cause food poisoning that can be serious or even life-threatening in pregnant women, the elderly and people whose immune systems are weak.

Listeriosis starts with flu-like symptoms such as fever, chills, muscle aches, nausea, and sometimes diarrhoea.

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