Frozen corn recalls spread beyond Europe – Updated July 13, 2018

, , , ,

On July 2, 2018, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) advised consumers in the EU that an outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes linked to contaminated frozen corn was under active investigation.

Based on a genetic analysis of strains recovered from patients in five EU contries, the outbreak began in 2015. As of June 15, the contaminated corn was responsible for 47 cases of listeriosis in five EU member countries, including: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Whole genome sequencing anaysis of 29 non-human L. monocytogenes isolates found them to be closely related to the multi-country human cluster of L. monocytogenes serogroup IVb, multi-locus sequence type 6 (ST6). The majority of the non- human isolates were obtained from 2017 season products: mainly frozen corn (13 samples), followed by frozen vegetable mixes including corn (8 samples), frozen spinach (1) and frozen green beans (1). Only one isolate was reported from a frozen vegetable mix produced in 2016, while three isolates were obtained from spinach products produced in 2018.

The probable source of the contaminated corn was traced to a production facility owned by Greenyard and located in Baja, Hungary. The corn was processed in Hungary and packed in Poland.

On 29 June 2018, the Hungarian Food Chain Safety Office banned the marketing of all frozen vegetable and frozen mixed vegetable products produced by the plant between August 2016 and June 2018, and ordered their immediate withdrawal and recall.

According to information obtained from the European Commissions’s Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF), the recalled corn was distributed to the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Hungary, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, the United States of America and Vatican City.
