  • Deadly bacteria fears: Supermarkets recall frozen vegetables

The 10 products being recalled in Australia contain vegetables sourced via Belgium and Hungary and are being sold in major supermarkets including Woolworths, Aldi and IGA.

People more commonly at risk or listeria contamination are the elderly, those with weak immune systems, pregnant women and their unborn babies.

Retailer Woolworths has recalled it's Frozen Savoury Rice Mix product following a worldwide product recall issued by the Hungarian Food Safety Agency in a global listeria outbreak.

It is uncommon but can be unsafe for pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

The listeria warning comes after a similar outbreak earlier this year affecting Australian rockmelons.

Woolworths said in its statement that Listeria bacteria are easily destroyed by cooking.


Countdown supermarkets have withdrawn a frozen vegetables product after concerns it may be contaminated with a risky strain of bacteria.

Scientists used whole genome sequencing to determine that the source was likely frozen corn and possibly other frozen vegetables.

The European Food Safety Authority said there had been 47 cases including nine deaths since an outbreak in Europe in 2015 linked to the affected vegetables. They detected the same strains of L. monocytogenes have been detected in frozen vegetables produced by the same Hungarian company in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

IGA - Black & Gold Corn Kernels 500g - National distribution.

Waitrose and Spinneys both pulled Waitrose Essential mixed vegetable bags from its freezers on Monday following a mass recall in the United Kingdom involving six supermarkets.
