New Zealand businesses that have had reported cases of the bacteria include a raw milk business in Southland, which was closed in September a year ago after batches of the milk tested positive for listeria.
Listeria is a bacteria, fully named listeria monocytogenes, which causes an illness named listeriosis.
It is uncommon but can be risky for pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.
The 10 products being recalled in Australia contain vegetables sourced via Belgium and Hungary and are being sold in major supermarkets including Woolworths, Aldi and IGA.
Frozen vegetables stocked at Australia's supermarket giants Woolworths, Aldi and IGA have been urgently recalled after fears of a possible listeria outbreak.
Customers who have purchased the product, should return the product to their local store for a full refund.
"Standards in Australia are some of the highest in the world, and now it's really easy to check, by having a quick look at the package to see where the product has come from, and you can make much more sensible decisions".
Symptoms of listeria infection can include severe cramps, stomach pain, nausea, fever and headaches.
Below are the products being recalled and if in doubt, chuck 'em out.
The mix has sweetcorn from a Greenyard factory in Hungary that may have been the source of a listeria outbreak.
Other frozen sweetcorn and vegetable products are not affected, the retailer added.
The same strains of the bacteria had been detected in frozen vegetables produced by the same Hungarian company in 2016, 2017 and 2018. "This suggests that the strains have persisted in the processing plant despite the cleaning and disinfection procedures that were carried out". This can lead to more serious problems including meningitis (a brain infection) and septicaemia (blood poisoning).
"We endorse the advice to cook frozen products until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for at least two minutes".
