Woolworths: No listeria detected in recalled product Woolworths: No listeria detected in recalled product

New Zealand Countdown supermarkets are recalling a frozen vegetable mix as a precaution amid fears it could contain a particularly risky strain of listeria.

Belgium-based company Greenyard Frozen Belgium NV has recalled the frozen vegetables - which include frozen corn, carrot, broccoli and mixed vegetable bags - from Woolworths, IGA and ALDI stores.

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

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

Listeriosis is an illness usually caused by eating food contaminated by bacteria which can grow in food at refrigeration temperatures, the department said.

So the Woolies uncooked savoury rice definitely had its market.

Woolies said other frozen sweetcorn or vegetable products were unaffected.

An FSA risk statement says: "The products listed above might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes".

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

Wooworths, Aldi and IGA recalled multiple packets of frozen vegetables after a possible listeria outbreak.

Those who purchased the recalled vegetable products are being offered refunds. The people most at risk from listeriosis include those suffering from cancer, pregnant women and their unborn babies, newborn babies, and elderly people.

"But if you're aged 70 or above, under aged five, newborn or sick (with diabetes, in hospital, having chemotherapy, having operations etc) then you can die from consuming listeria that is found on some frozen food".

The listeria bacteria can develop into the rare but serious listeriosis illness.

Listeria is particularly risky for pregnant women, their unborn children, and newborns.

Greenyard is mainly active in the distribution of fresh products, such as vegetables, fruit, flowers and plants.
