UAE supermarkets recall frozen food following killer listeria outbreak in Europe

Deadly bacteria fears: Supermarkets recall frozen vegetables

Deadly bacteria fears: Supermarkets recall frozen vegetables

Over 200 people have died in South Africa since the outbreak.

A food company with a factory in Lynn has recalled dozens of frozen vegetable products amid fears they may be contaminated.

"Listeria may cause illness in pregnant women and their unborn babies, the elderly and people with low immune systems", the Food Authority said.

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

Listeria is a type of bacteria that can live in soil, water, dust, animal faeces or other substances.

Woolworths: Essentials snap frozen mixed veg 1kg: carrots, peas, corn, green beans and potatoes.

It adds: "Instead, return the product to the store from where it was bought for a full refund".

Early symptoms include a fever, headache, tiredness and aches and pains.

Food Standards Australia and New Zealand have recalled nine products - a mix of corn, carrot, pea and broccoli ranges - that originated from Britain, Belgium and Hungary.

Countdown supermarkets have withdrawn a frozen vegetables product after concerns it may be contaminated with a unsafe strain of bacteria.

Those who have eaten the product and feel unwell should seek medical treatment.

In February, contaminated rockmelons from a New South Wales rockmelon farm resulted in six deaths in NSW and Victoria and just last month, 21 people in South Australia were struck down with salmonella poisoning linked to alfalfa sprouts.

Aldi, Lidl, Iceland, Sainsbury's, Tesco, and Waitrose have recalled frozen vegetable packages, including packets of sweetcorn and mixed vegetables, because they could contain listeria monocytogenes, which can cause listeriosis.

ALDI - Only products with country of origin of Belgium, United Kingdom or Hungary.
