·2-min read

Ready-made meals sold at Coles and IGA are being recalled due to contamination concerns.

Several Raw Nation Wholefoods ready-made meals have been recalled due to potential microbial (listeria monocytogenes) contamination.

For pregnant women, their unborn children, the elderly and people with low immune systems, Listeria may cause illness.

The Raw Nation Wholefoods products were sold at Coles and independent food retailers including IGA in South Australia. The recall is specific to six items within the company's CRUDO and Bocadilla ranges.

The Use By markings of concern are August 31, 2022, and September 1, 2 and 3, 2022.

  • CRUDO Jamaican Jerk, 250g

Beer sold at Woolworths and Coles recalled

Over the weekend, Eagle Bay Brewing Company announced it was recalling its 375mL XPA cans with a best before date of 19/04/23 due to secondary fermentation.

Secondary fermentation can alter the flavour and alcohol content of the beverage and the beers potentially pose a danger to consumers.

"Food products containing excess alcohol and carbonation may cause illness/injury if consumed," Food Standards Australia said in a statement.

In July this year, a popular ice cream brand sold at Coles Woolworths and IGA supermarkets across Australia was recalled due to contamination fears of a potentially toxic chemical.

Two Haagen-Dazs products — Vanilla 457ml and Classic Collection Mini Cups 4 x 95mL — were stripped from shelves due to the potential presence of ethylene oxide.
