"It's the Hungarian production site that has been implicated in the listeria outbreak in the European Union", says Carstensen.

Listeriosis is a bacterial disease caused by listeria.

Listeriosis is seen as a serious illness and is caused by the Listeria bacteria, with infection usually caused by eating contaminated foods.

Although uncommon, it can be particularly unsafe for pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

Meanwhile, Woolworth says its other frozen sweetcorn and vegetable products have not been affected.

A raft of frozen vegetable products have been pulled from supermarket shelves across Australia in a major food recall.

It can contaminate a wide variety of food types, including meat and meat products, dairy products both unpasteurised and pasteurised, fresh and frozen produce and ready-to-eat products.

Anyone with the products in their freezer should return to the place of purchase for a full refund or dispose of it.

The full list of foods affected by the bacteria have now been revealed, and consumers should be trying their best to avoid them.

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

They detected the same strains of L. monocytogenes have been detected in frozen vegetables produced by the same Hungarian company in 2016, 2017 and 2018. "This suggests that the strains have persisted in the processing plant despite the cleaning and disinfection procedures that were carried out".

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services has revealed that a Victorian may have contracted listeria as a result of consuming the recently recalled frozen vegetables.

"To verify the safety of our food products, we implement additional monitoring where we independently have our food products tested randomly", the store said, adding the testing included listeria checks.

The Greenyard statement continues: "We are in close contact with competent authorities to assess further information together and we fully support any further research, as food safety and the health of consumers are obviously our number one priority".

"The products affected contain a particularly risky strain of listeria and are being recalled as a precautionary measure to ensure consumers are protected, but particularly vulnerable populations", May said.
