The Woolworths product is sourced from Belgium and contains frozen sweetcorn sourced from the Greenyard Factory in Hungary.

New Zealand Countdown supermarkets are recalling a frozen vegetable mix as a precaution amid fears it could contain a particularly risky strain of listeria.

Consumers should not consume this product and should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

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

"We are voluntarily recalling this product as a precautionary measure‚ on the global instruction of the Hungarian Food Safety Agency‚" the retailer said in a statement announcing the recall.

Woolworths, IGA, and Aldi have confirmed the products have been removed from shelves.

Some of the products that have been recalled.

Apple and Blackmagic designed this eGPU to turbocharge MacBook Pros
The larger 15in laptop gains 6-core i7 and i9 processors, replacing the quad-core versions, which Apple says will be 70% faster. The RAM can be as much as 32GB of DDR4 memory and GPUs are, of course, discrete AMD Radeon Pros with 4GB of video memory.

Listeria in tainted melon killed seven people in Australia earlier this year.

Food authorities said the vegetables could carry listeria monocytogenes which can cause listeriosis.

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

And the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said listeria has been affecting Austria, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom in recent years.

A number of brand names are affected by the recall, including Woolworths homebrand and IGA Black & Gold mixed vegetable and corn kernel products.

"The products affected contain a particularly unsafe strain of listeria and are being recalled as a precautionary measure to ensure consumers are protected, but particularly vulnerable populations", May said. At this stage, Greenyard says that it does not have specific data or confirmation on health issues linked to contamination of its products, but that it is continuing to monitor this and has taken a range of measures to pre-empt potential health risks.

There are concerns that the products may be contaminated with listeria, a potentially deadly food-borne bacteria.
