UAE supermarkets recall frozen food following killer listeria outbreak in Europe

Australia has become caught up in a European food scare, with supermarkets across the country recalling bags of frozen vegetables over fears they may contain a deadly bacteria.

"We are voluntarily recalling this product as a precautionary measure, on the global instruction of the Hungarian Food Safety Agency".

Woolworths is in the process of recalling its frozen savoury rice mix product, the company said on Tuesday.

"Standards in Australia are some of the highest in the world, and now it's really easy to check, by having a quick look at the package to see where the product has come from, and you can make much more sensible decisions".

The products were being sold at Woolworths, ALDI and IGA, Campbells and independent grocery stores under brand names Woolworths Essentials, Black and Gold and Market Fare.

Earlier this year six people sadly died, in New South Wales and Victoria, after consuming contaminated rockmelon, with the outbreak being traced back to Rombola Family Farms in the Riverina region.

Listeria is a life-threatening illness for certain people, particularly those over the age of 60.

In healthy people, the infection may be mistaken for a mild viral infection or flu.

Aldi stocks several frozen vegetable products with contamination risk including "Market Fare Quick Steam Carrot Broccoli and Cauliflower 450g".

Symptoms of the rare disease include muscle aches, fevers, nausea, drowsiness and diarrhoea, according to a Department of Health fact sheet.

Some of the vegetables were imported from Europe, and the recall in Australia comes after products were removed from shelves in the United Kingdom over the same contamination fears.
