Woolies, Aldi and IGA recall frozen vegetables over deadly listeria fears

Deadly bacteria fears: Supermarkets recall frozen vegetables Frozen vegetables pulled from shelves in Woolworths, ALDI, IGA amid listeria fears

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

It is feared they contained the deadly listeria monocytogenes - with 47 people being affected since 2015, nine of which have died.

What products are on recall?

.

The warning extends to all bags of the product regardless of the batch codes and best before dates. See these gross findings from a frog in a wrap to a cockroach on a hash brown.

Aldi is carrying most of the potentially listeria-infected products.

Symptoms of the rare disease include muscle aches, fevers, nausea, drowsiness and diarrhoea, according to a Department of Health fact sheet.

Listeria is found widely in the environment, but is particularly unsafe for pregnant women and their unborn babies, and can cause death in people with compromised immune systems.

Food scientists and food safety experts say a common misconception that it is safe to eat vegetables while they are still frozen has contributed to an Australia-wide product recall announced on Monday.

It has already been linked to at least two deaths in the United Kingdom - with several more across Europe.

"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 unsafe bacteria is killed by the acid in your stomach", Mr Kennedy said.

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