The UK Food Standards Agency [FSA] has issued a health alert recalling frozen vegetables from a range of supermarkets following 11 deaths from listeria poisoning across Europe, including two in Britain. The contamination has been traced to a factory in Hungary, but the source of contamination has yet to be revealed.

Products that are being recalled include frozen sweetcorn, peas, beans and spinach and UK supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Lidl, Aldi, Waitrose and Iceland are all affected. The full list can be seen here.

Listeria monocytogenes poses a serious threat to people with a weakened immune system, the elderly, pregnant women, unborn and new-born babies.

Plantbasednews.org quoted a Public Health England spokesman as saying: "In the UK, there have been two deaths due to listeria linked to this outbreak. In both cases the individuals had underlying health conditions."
