RECALL: Major Supermarkets Recall Frozen Veg After Listeria Kills 9
0shares

Major food stores are recalling 43 frozen food products after Listeria bacteria kills NINE people.

The packs of frozen veg are being recalled by supermarkets including Tesco, Lidl, Aldi, Waitrose, and Iceland after fears that they could make people seriously ill.

The Food Standards Agency believes that frozen sweetcorn is the vegetable that is causing the bacteria.

What is Listeriosis you may ask?

Well, it’s a rare illness causes by a bacteria called Listeria monocytogenes, which is particularly risky for those with weaker immune systems, pregnant women, the elderly, and infants.

Symptoms of the illness are similar to flu, and those who are contaminated may suffer from muscle aches, chills, high temperature, diarrhoea and feeling and being sick.

The Manchester Evening News reported that sadly nine people have died from the bacteria since the 8th of June, and that five European countries are currently affected, which is why the recall is so urgent.

It is thought that the bacteria has been found in frozen veg made by a Hungarian company in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

If you own any of the products included in the recall, the FSA is urging you not to eat them, and to instead return the products to your local store for a full refund.

The FSA has released a massive list of the frozen food products that are being taken off the shelves.

This is the full list of products affected:
