  • Different packs of frozen vegetables

Woolworths, IGA, and Aldi have confirmed the products have been removed from shelves.

"Standards in Australia are some of the highest in the world, and now it's really easy to check, by having a quick look at the package to see where the product has come from, and you can make much more sensible decisions".

"Food safety is of critical importance to Woolworths and we take all issues regarding the production of our food extremely seriously".

It follows similar moves in Britain last week over vegetable products from supplier Greenyard Frozen.

But after the 44 products were recalled - Lidl has now issued another recall for 640g bags of Green Grocer Carrots, Broccoli and Sweetcorn.

"On 6 July the affected companies undertook precautionary action".

Consumers should not consume this product and should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Early symptoms include fever, headaches, tiredness and aches and pains.

Whole genome sequencing was used to identify the food source, which initially was thought to be limited to frozen corn. Contaminated sweetcorn has so far been linked to 47 cases of illness across Europe, with nine deaths reported.

"This suggests that the strains have persisted in the processing plant despite the cleaning and disinfection procedures that were carried out", according to the EFSA.

A number of popular brands of frozen vegetables sold in Canberra have been recalled amid fears they may be contaminated with the deadly Listeria bacteria.

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