"This Greenyard Factory has been implicated as the potential source of a Listeria outbreak in Europe", Woolworths said in a statement.
But the patient's death earlier this year means authorities will never know if they ate the suspect vegies.
Listeria is a rare bacteria responsible for the disease listeriosis.
Foodborne bacteria such as listeria can be spread by cross-contamination, such as when raw and cooked foods are stored together.
The outbreak has been blamed on frozen sweetcorn, so products which have likely come into contact are now being recalled.
New Zealand Countdown supermarkets are recalling a frozen vegetable mix as a precaution amid fears it could contain a particularly unsafe strain of listeria.
Australians are being told to check their freezers and destroy the products or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
"Listeria comes in a number of varieties. Some types are more virulent than others and could imply a different level of health risks".
"We have been alerted to the possible presence of listeria in certain frozen vegetable packs". Symptoms may include headaches, fever, tiredness and aches and pains.
But after the 44 products were recalled - Lidl has now issued another recall for 640g bags of Green Grocer Carrots, Broccoli and Sweetcorn. So far no Australian cases have been reported, but customers should still be wary. The same strain of listeria was detected there in 2016, 2017 and 2018. "This suggests that the strains have persisted in the processing plant despite the cleaning and disinfection procedures that were carried out".
Woolworths has recalled all Woolworths Frozen Savoury Rice Mix products amidst fears of Listeria... It can lead to sepsis and meningitis (infection and inflammation of membranes surrounding the brain).
Carstensen says the product has been tested and found to be compliant. Thorough cooking ensures that the product is safe.
