The curious thing about the frozen vegetables is that I would assume (although I know little about listeria) that it would be easily killed by steam. I would also assume most people are going to cook these vegetables before they eat them. Never heard of anyone just thawing out frozen vegetables and eating them raw.

Good point. Only you have to hold the steam at 15- 30 minutes to kill things in there
But conventional wisdom says freezing for more than three days kills everything in there as well. So maybe lystiria must be one hell of a creature.
