Woolworths said that while random tests on the product had found no evidence of listeria, the move was a precautionary measure and had been taken on global instruction.

The retailer said none of its other frozen sweetcorn or vegetable products are affected.

It can be more serious for people with weakened immune systems and also the elderly, pregnant women and infants.

The recall, linked to a factory in Europe, prompted calls from local growers for shoppers to "buy Australian".

The latest food scandal to hit the United Kingdom involves supposed nutritional good guys the vegetables, who, instead of being nice and giving us vitamins and fibre, are now also delivering potentially fatal listeria infections to our overwhelmed freezer compartments.

Listeriosis is a bacterial disease caused by listeria.

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

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

Animals and food products such as vegetables can become contaminated from these sources.

Nine deaths in Europe have been reported during the outbreak, which is believed to have started at a packaging plant in Hungary. They detected the same strains of L. monocytogenes have been detected in frozen vegetables produced by the same Hungarian company in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Woolworths - Essentials snap frozen mixed veg 1kg: Carrots, peas, corn, green beans & potatoes - National distribution. National distribution, all stock.

A spokeswoman for Fine Fare Food Market, which operates both chains in the UAE, confirmed that shoppers will receive a full refund.

ALDI: Market Fare Mixed Vegetables 1kg. All other countries not affected.
