The patient, who was also being treated for another serious illness, died earlier this year meaning Victoria's health department has been unable to determine if they had consumed any of the frozen vegetable products.

About 20 per cent of frozen vegetables sold in Australia are from overseas.

Listeriosis is a bacterial disease caused by listeria. Those who are over 70, have diabetes, cancer or even suppressed immune systems are most at risk, as well as pregnant women and their unborn babies.

Symptoms could include headache, fever, tiredness and aches and pains.

In pregnant women, symptoms can still appear mild but infection can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, pre-term labour, illness or death of newborns. So far no Australian cases have been reported, but customers should still be wary.

"We are voluntarily recalling this product as a precautionary measure, on the global instruction of the Hungarian Food Safety Agency", Woolworths said in a statement dated July 10.

The factory has been implicated as the potential source of a listeria outbreak in Europe.
