Major supermarket retailers in the UK have recalled over forty food items following a Europe-wide listeriosis outbreak.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) Public Health England and Health Protection Scotland are reminding the public that most frozen vegetables, including sweetcorn, need to be cooked before eating. This includes if adding them to salads, smoothies or dips.

Frozen sweetcorn is the likely source of the ongoing outbreak of listeriosis affecting five European countries including the United Kingdom.

What is it?

The rare but serious foodborne illness can worse affect those with weakened immune systems as well as the elderly, pregnant women and infants, so extra vigilance is encouraged.
