Black and Gold frozen vegetables recalled over listeria fears

A recall has been issued for frozen vegetables across three states that may be contaminated with potentially deadly listeria bacteria.

Customers in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania have been urged to discard 1 kilogram packets of Black and Gold mixed vegetables, regardless of their best before date.

The NSW Food Authority said anyone concerned about their health should seek medical advice.

"Consumers should not consume this product and should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund," it said.

The product is sold in IGA, Campbells and Independent Grocers.

Listeria can be particularly dangerous for pregnant women and their unborn babies, along with the elderly and anyone with weakened immune systems.

The warning comes weeks after a similar listeria-related recall of popular frozen vegetable products sold in Aldi, Woolworths and IGA stores, some of which were imported from Europe.

The peak body for Australian vegetable growers, AUSVEG, said that recall did not involve any locally grown products.
