Frozen vegetables recalled from Aussie supermarkets over contamination fears

Woolworths has recalled its frozen savoury rice mix following a listeria outbreak alert in Europe.

When you're cooking up a storm and you still have to put the pot of rice on the stove, it can be a bit of an effort.

According to the EFSA, new cases could still emerge due to the extended incubation period of listeriosis (up to 70 days); the long shelf-life of frozen corn products; and the consumption of frozen corn bought before the recalls and eaten without being cooked properly.

ALDI (only products with country of origin of Belgium, United Kingdom or Hungary, all other countries not affected) - Market Fare Peas, Carrots and Super Sweet Corn 1kg - National distribution.

And the Liverpool defender has praised Croatian parents for "making good love" and giving the small country several sports stars. They are a strong team, their players play all over the world. "I'm happy for them of course".

Woolworths Frozen Savoury Rice‚ which is sourced from Belgium‚ contains frozen sweetcorn from the Greenyard Factory in Hungary - which has been implicated as a potential source of the outbreak.

Acting Food Standards Australia New Zealand chief executive Peter May said pregnant women, people whose immune systems are compromised and elderly people, were at a much greater risk from Listeria infection.

Listeria is generally caused by eating food contaminated by the bacteria.

South Africa was early this year hit by a Listeria outbreak that killed over 200 people.
