Cyprus recalls TESCO frozen veggies

Specific frozen corn and vegetables under recall could cause food poisoning


The government has issued a food alert, recalling specific brands of frozen vegetables by Tesco due to the possibility of being infected by bacteria that can cause food poisoning.

The products under the recall, which should not be consumed, are Tesco Sweetcorn 1 kg, Tesco Farmhouse mixed vegetables 1 kg , Tesco Mixed vegetables 1 kg ,Tesco Micro Veg 640 g, and Freshona Corn 450g .

According to government authorities, the products could be tainted with bacteria that can cause listeriosis, an infection that usually develops after eating food that has been contaminated by Listeria monocytogenes. 

A listeria infection can be more serious for the elderly, pregnant women and infants

A listeria infection can be more serious for individuals who have weakened immune systems, but also the elderly, pregnant women and infants.

The recall was facilitated through the flow of information by RASFF, the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed, which enables swift action and reaction within the EU when risks to public health are detected in the food chain.

Consumers are being told to return the affected products at the supermarket or place of purchase and under no circumstances should they consume the product.
