Woolies, IGA, ALDI veggies recalled after listeria outbreak

According to Food Standard Australia New Zealand, the recall is due to "possible microbial (Listeria monocytogenes) contamination".

The rice mix contains frozen sweetcorn sourced from the Greenyard Factory in Hungary.

The company's statement was circulated on social media and although there were serious concerns about food safety, many social media users wanted to know, "who is buying frozen rice".

"Listeria bacteria are easily destroyed by cooking".

The products involved included frozen corn, peas, beans, spinach and sorrel, Greenyard said.

ALDI: Only products with country of origin of Belgium, United Kingdom or Hungary, all other countries not affected.

Listeria is a threat to people with low immune systems, pregnant women and unborn babies.

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

While listeriosis can be a nasty bacteria that leads to illness, it is also a preventable evil.

In pregnant women, symptoms can still appear mild but infection can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, pre-term labour, illness or death of newborns.

This measure was triggered by more advanced research (whole genome sequencing) by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), indicating that there was a potential contamination with a specific type of listeria, which might incur health risks in case frozen vegetables are not properly cooked before consumption.

"We endorse the advice to cook frozen products until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for at least two minutes".
