Popular Asian mushrooms recalled over bacteria fears



Mushrooms sold at Asian grocery stores across Queensland and northern New South Wales are being recalled due to bacteria fears.

"Listeria may cause illness in pregnant women and their unborn babies, the elderly and people with low immune systems," the food safety regulator said in a statement.
