Listeria fears have taken hold in the UK as frozen vegetables have been blamed.

Now Tesco, Lidl, Aldi and Iceland have removed these products.

Tests done on a food factory in Hungry found frozen sweetcorn it was the source of an outbreak of listeriosis.

Dr Kathie Grant from Public Health England said: “Most people won’t have any symptoms of the infection or will only experience mild symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhoea, which usually pass within a few days without the need for treatment.”

But she warned: “More serious infection can develop in those with weakened immune systems or in vulnerable groups including babies, the elderly or pregnant women.

“The best way to prevent listeriosis is to practise good food hygiene.

“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.

“This includes if adding them to salads, smoothies or dips.”

Below is a full list of the product Tesco, Lidl, Aldi and Iceland have removed from shelves.

Britons should avoid eating these products, experts recommend.
