Australia – Frozen vegetables pulled from shelves in Woolworths, ALDI, IGA amid Listeria monocytogenes fears

9News

Fears over the deadly listeria strain of bacteria have sparked a recall of popular frozen vegetable products from supermarket shelves across Australia.

Belgium-based company Greenyard Frozen Belgium NV has recalled the frozen vegetables – which include frozen corn, carrot, broccoli and mixed vegetable bags – from Woolworths, IGA and ALDI stores.

The recall comes after a number of listeria deaths in Europe in the past three years.

The European Food Safety Authority said there had been nine deaths among 47 cases of listeria since an outbreak in 2015, the ABC reported.
