Below are the products being recalled and if in doubt, chuck 'em out.

The same strains of the bacteria had been detected in frozen vegetables produced by the same Hungarian company in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Full details of different batches of frozen vegetables that have been recalled from United Kingdom supermarkets have been published by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) including batch numbers, pack size and best before date.

Food Standards Australia New Zealand chief executive Peter May warned Australians to check their freezers for the possibly contaminated products.

However, it wasn't until five days later that a wider public alert was issued.

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

Wooworths, Aldi and IGA recalled multiple packets of frozen vegetables after a possible listeria outbreak.

"Along with the FSA, FSS (Food Standards Scotland) and HPS (Health Protection Scotland), we are reminding people that most frozen vegetables, including sweetcorn, need to be cooked before eating".

It is found widely in the environment.

Listeria may cause illness in pregnant women and their unborn babies, the elderly and people with low immune systems.
