Woolworth recalls savoury rice after listeria outbreak in Europe

Different packs of frozen vegetables

The major supermarket joined Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Aldi and Iceland last week in recalling more than 40 potential lethal products.

ALDI - Market Fare Quick Steam Carrot Corn and Broccoli 450g - National distribution.

"Customers should return the product to their nearest store where they will receive a full refund".

The product is also sold by Woolworths supermarkets in Australia, which are also owned by Countdown's parent company, Progressive Enterprises.

The news of the death, which occurred earlier this year, comes days after a recall of frozen food products contaminated with the deadly bacteria.

An MPI spokeswoman said, once the vegetables were cooked, there was no risk of listeria poisoning.

As of June 4‚038 tons of recalled products have been destroyed by thermal treatment or landfill‚ according to certificates provided by the Department of Environmental Affairs in South Africa.

"What we're trying to do now is establish which suppliers have the product that is affected not only from Australia but around the world", the MPI spokeswoman said.

It is understood the affected foods came from in Hungary and Belgium.

European distributor Greenyard Frozen Belgium NV issued the recall today after an outbreak was traced to Belgium and Hungary.

Listeriosis starts with flu-like symptoms such as fever, chills, muscle aches, nausea, and sometimes diarrhoea.

The concerns follow on from a listeriosis outbreak linked to contaminated rockmelons a few months ago in which several people died in NSW and Victoria.

People at risk are advised to contact their doctors immediately after possible symptoms appear. Thorough cooking ensures that the product is safe.

"Frozen corn and possibly other frozen vegetables are the likely source of an outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes that has been affecting Austria, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom since 2015", says an EFSA statement.
