  • The Food Standards Agency has issued another product recall over fears listeria contamination

More products have been added to the list of frozen food products being recalled and removed from supermarket shelves over a deadly listeria outbreak scare.

On Thursday the Food Standards agency released a list of 43 frozen products being sold in Tesco , Lidl , Aldi , Waitrose , Icelandand others.

Six new items have now been added to the list of items recalled by Greenyard Frozen UK Ltd, which produced the food.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has warned that frozen sweetcorn is the likely source of listeriosis affecting five European countries, including the UK, which has reportedly claimed the lives of several people.

Listeriosis is a rare but serious foodborne illness caused by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes that can be more serious for those individuals who have weakened immune systems, and also the elderly, pregnant women and infants.

In a statement the FSA said:” If you have bought any of the below products do not eat them. Instead, return the product to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.

“The products listed below might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

“Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick or diarrhoea.

ome people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems.”

Greenyard Frozen UK Ltd are recalling the above products. Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling these products.

These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought any of the products listed above.
