A supermarket supplier based in King's Lynn has recalled some of its frozen vegetable products over fears they could contain the deadly listeria bacteria.

Own-brand sweetcorn items for Tesco, Aldi and Sainsbury's are among those affected.

A list of 49 recalled products has been posted on The Food Standards Agency's website.

"The products listed above might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

"Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.

"Some people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems."

The FSA is advising anyone who has bought the products to return them to the store where it was bought for a full refund.

Instead of asking guests to bring presents when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married at Windsor they've chosen seven charities for people to donate to.

One of those selected was the charity Scotty's Little Soldiers based in King's Lynn in Norfolk.

It was founded by war widow Nikki Scott after her husband and father to her two children, Corporal Lee Scott, was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.

Since then the charity's helped hundreds of families in similar circumstances.
