Western Australia: South Korean mushrooms recalled over fears of listeria

Packets of a South Korean brand of mushrooms have been recalled amid fears of a potentially deadly bacteria. Korea Connections 300g packets of enoki mushrooms with a best before date of August 17 may contain listeria monocytogenes, and the packet itself has no instructions to cook the mushrooms before eating.

The mushrooms are sold at independent and Asian groceries in Western Australia.

Food Standards Australia, which handles food recalls, said listeria bacteria “may cause severe illness in pregnant women, unborn babies, neonates, the elderly, and individuals who are immunocompromised.”

The general population can also get sick from consuming the bacteria. Consumers with the mushrooms are urged not to eat them.
