Waitrose recall on Essentials Mixed Vegetables and Essentials Supersweet Sweet Corn

Frozen food sold in some of Britain’s biggest supermarkets has been removed from their shelves because of a deadly outbreak of bacteria. 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. They were all produced by a company called Greenyard Frozen UK Ltd, which has taken the “precautionary step of voluntarily recalling various frozen vegetable products because they might contain Listeria monocytogenes”.

Foster’s IGA does carry both affected Essential Waitrose products and both have been pulled from the shelves.
