Denmark, UK, Germany, etc: Greenyard Foods initiated a recall for frozen vegetable products manufactured at its processing facility in Hungary.
"Greenyard recalls frozen vegetables from its Hungary based plant, produced between 13 August 2016 and 20 June 2018,” the group said in a statement.
“This measure is taken in the framework of potential listeria contamination of frozen products produced in its Hungary based facility in Baja. It relates to a specific type of listeria, which might incur health risks in case frozen vegetables are not properly cooked before consumption. Products involved include frozen corn, peas, beans, spinach and sorrel.”
The move largely impacts own label frozen vegetables on sale in a number of European markets.
Lidl Denmark recalled frozen Frozen Freshona extra sweet corn sold across the country. The recall applies to all products regardless of expiry date.
Coop Denmark recalled its deep-frozen Coop Extra sweet corn sold in Kvickly, SuperBrugsen , Dagli '& LokalBrugsen, Facts, Use, Irma and Coop.dk/mad.
Lidl Germany recalled Freshona vegetable mix, produced by vegetable group Greenyard, because “it cannot be ruled out” that the product is contaminated.
The majority of the UK’s major supermarket multiples and a number of independents were also hit. Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Iceland, Aldi and Lidl all issued recalls for frozen vegetable products containing sweetcorn.
