Woolworths: No listeria detected in recalled product

Woolworths: No listeria detected in recalled product

"Following a worldwide product recall issued by the Hungarian Food Safety Agency, and purely as a precautionary measure, we are recalling our Woolworths Frozen Savoury Rice Mix product", the company reportedly said.

Hence six of our supermarkets - Aldi, Iceland, Lidl, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose - recalling vast quantities of their bagged-up frozen veg.

Woolworths said the Frozen Savoury Rice Mix product (6009173621740) sourced from the Greenyard Factory in a Hungarian factory was taken off their shelves and flagged, and that any attempt to purchase the products would not work.

More than a week ago, the Hungarian agency banned the marketing of all frozen vegetable and frozen mixed vegetable products made by the affected Hungarian plant and ordered their immediate withdrawal and recall.

UAE supermarkets have recalled frozen products following a listeria outbreak that has killed nine people in Europe.

According to Business Insider, this is the only Woolworths product believed to be affected.

Listeria is a threat to people with low immune systems, pregnant women and unborn babies.

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.

It's estimated that in Australia each year, around 150 people are hospitalised with listeriosis, the symptoms of which can initially be mistaken for a cold or the flu.

The FSA advises people who have bought any of the products not to eat them and instead return the products to the store for a full refund. National distribution, best before 19 March 2020 - 24 April 2020.

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 warning extends to all bags of the product regardless of the batch codes and best before dates.
