Woolworths is recalling a frozen savoury rice product as a precaution after a listeria outbreak in Europe.

The company said they took this issue very seriously and that this was a safety concern, with no other food products affected.

When you're cooking up a storm and you still have to put the pot of rice on the stove, it can be a bit of an effort.

Woolworths' Karin Carstensen says the product is manufactured in Belgium using ingredients from Hungary.

So there were definitely people out there out there throwing bags of frozen rice into their trollies and saying thank you to the retailer for making their life easier.

Unfortunately, the Victorian case who was being treated for another serious illness died earlier this year.

"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.

Trump visit to United Kingdom begins on awkward note
The US Embassy has warned American citizens to keep a low profile during the visit in case protests turn violent. After the visit, Trump will decamp to Finland for a one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16.

A Countdown frozen vegetable medley has been recalled over fears it could contain listeria. A listeria outbreak has hit five countries in the last three years - Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and the United Kingdom.

Woolworths on Monday removed a product believed to be contaminated with listeria from its shelves.

Customers who have purchased the product can return it to their local store for a full refund.

Symptoms of the rare disease include muscle aches, fevers, nausea, drowsiness and diarrhoea, according to a Department of Health fact sheet.

But the ministry has not yet ruled out whether the products on sale in New Zealand have come from the same suppliers as those affected by the Australian recall.

Listeriosis is an illness usually caused by eating food contaminated by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. It can lead to sepsis and meningitis (infection and inflammation of membranes surrounding the brain). Thorough cooking ensures that the product is safe.

The food chain reportedly said its food products are independently tested at random.
