The listeria bacteria can develop into the rare but serious listeriosis illness.

Woolworths South Africa has recalled its Savory Rice Mix product after one of its suppliers was identified as the likely source of a Listeria outbreak in Europe.

Woolworths said the recall is purely a precautionary measure, on the global instruction of the Hungarian Food Safety Agency.

The notice on the Food Standards Agency states that although the bacteria can be killed through cooking, sweetcorn can be eaten raw and could be a potential threat.

The listeria warning comes after a similar outbreak earlier this year affecting Australian rockmelons.

It is found widely in the environment, but is particularly risky for pregnant women and their unborn babies, and can cause death in people with compromised immune systems.

The recall applies to the frozen vegetables stocked by Greenyard Frozen Belgium NV.

About 20 per cent of frozen vegetables sold in Australia are from overseas.

The latest food scandal to hit the United Kingdom involves supposed nutritional good guys the vegetables, who, instead of being nice and giving us vitamins and fibre, are now also delivering potentially fatal listeria infections to our overwhelmed freezer compartments. 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.

Sweetcorn is the number one suspect food that needs to be eliminated, but frozen beans, peas, mixed veg and peppers are also on the danger list.
