Listeria outbreak: Lidl recall MORE vegetables over deadly bacteria

Listeria outbreak: Lidl recall MORE vegetables over deadly bacteria

The Food Standards Agency has named more products that are being withdrawn from the shelves of United Kingdom supermarkets following a Europe-wide food poisoning alert.

"None of our other frozen sweetcorn or vegetable products are affected".

The latest items to be recalled include Tesco's Frozen Mixed Vegetables and Peppers, Lidl's Green Grocer's Carrots, Broccoli and Sweetcorn, and Sainsbury's Mixed Vegetables.

So there were definitely people out there out there throwing bags of frozen rice into their trollies and saying thank you to the retailer for making their life easier.

The Victorian, whose age and gender have not been supplied by the state's health department, was also being treated for another serious illness when they died.

Listeria can cause illness in pregnant women and their unborn babies, the elderly and people with low immune systems such as cancer and organ-transplant patients.

The listeria case was identified in Australia in February and is now being linked to the recalled frozen vegetables.

In February of the following year, he was arrested for obstruction of justice following an incident at his Georgia home. Most recently, he pleaded guilty to obstructing police following a January 2017 altercation in downtown Cincinnati.

A Countdown frozen vegetable medley has been recalled over fears it could contain listeria.

Woolworths, IGA, and Aldi have confirmed the products have been removed from shelves.

But the ministry has not yet ruled out whether the products on sale in New Zealand have come from the same suppliers as those affected by the Australian recall.

Symptoms of listeria infection can include severe cramps, stomach pain, nausea, fever and headaches.

Consumers are urged not to eat the products and to return to the place of purchase for a refund. "Thorough cooking would ensure that the product is safe". At this stage, Greenyard says that it does not have specific data or confirmation on health issues linked to contamination of its products, but that it is continuing to monitor this and has taken a range of measures to pre-empt potential health risks.

"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".
