Deadly bacteria fears: Supermarkets recall frozen vegetables
Supermarkets across Australia have begun recalling bags of frozen vegetables amid fears they could contain a deadly bacteria.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand confirmed a precautionary recall is under way of about 10 frozen vegetable products due to the possible presence of listeria.
Supermarkets including Woolworths, IGA and ALDI have pulled packets of sweetcorn and frozen vegetable products from shelves.
Own-brand products for ALDI, including Market Fare frozen vegetables, are among those affected as well as bags of Essentials snap frozen mixed vegetables and Bell Farms steam veggie carrot, corn and broccoli bags, which are sold at Woolworths.
Black and Gold branded frozen vegetables are also at risk and have been recalled across Australia.
The products have been available for sale at Woolworths, ALDI and IGA, Campbells and independent grocery stores. Sydney Morning Herald – Read more…
