  • Deadly bacteria fears: Supermarkets recall frozen vegetables

Woolworths is recalling a frozen savoury rice product as a precaution after a listeria outbreak in Europe.

Greenyard Frozen Belgium NV is conducting the recall of the frozen vegetable products which originate from Belgium and Hungary.

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

On 29 June 2018, the Hungarian Food Chain Safety Office banned the marketing of all frozen vegetable and frozen mixed vegetable products produced by the affected plant between August 2016 and June 2018, and ordered their immediate withdrawal and recall. The Frozen Savoury Rice Mix product is uncooked and frozen and so requires cooking before consumption.

Acting FSANZ CEO Peter May said pregnant women, people whose immune systems were compromised (eg cancer patients) and elderly people should check their freezers for the recalled items that are possibly contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

The products include snap frozen vegetable mixes, corn kernels, quick-steam carrot, broccoli and cauliflower mixes, and pea, carrot and sweet corn mixes.

Other frozen sweetcorn and vegetable products are not affected, the retailer added. Thorough cooking ensures that the product is safe.


If anyone has already bought any of the following products, supermarkets are offering a full refund.

Hence six of our supermarkets - Aldi, Iceland, Lidl, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose - recalling vast quantities of their bagged-up frozen veg.

This after an ST6 strain of listeria was found at an Enterprise Foods facility in Polokwane.

Listeria is a life-threatening illness for certain people, particularly those over the age of 60. "Also in pregnant women listeria can cause miscarriage, and if the baby is born it could have brain damage".

"There are indications that contaminated products may still be on the market or that contaminated products purchased before the recalls are still being consumed", the authority said.

"If you are a healthy adult you'd have to eat a lot of frozen vegetables to make you sick because most of the potentially risky bacteria is killed by the acid in your stomach", Mr Kennedy said.
