Frozen vegetables recalled from Aussie supermarkets over listeria concerns

Belgium-based frozen food distributor Greenyard Frozen NV is conducting the recall of its products and United Kingdom supermarkets - Aldi, Lidl, Iceland, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose - have also removed various frozen vegetable products from their shelves due to concerns about possible listeria contamination.

The specific packets that are of risk of listeria contamination include mixed carrot, corn, broccoli, peas packets stocked under three brands: Black & Gold, Market Fare and Bell Farms. The government's Food Standards Agency has a complete list of the recalled products, so take your slushy bag back to the shops for your 99p refund.

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

Countdown has voluntarily withdrawn one if its frozen vegetable Bell Farms' products after a recall in Australia.

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.
