Ham sold at Woolworths should be considered dangerous as a number of Barossa fine foods products have been recalled due to fears of listeria.
The foods that carry the likeness thereof are fresh or frozen foods.
To date, listeria can be found in a variety of things. One of them is animals and is the main reason for contamination concerns.

While most individuals experience symptoms within days of consuming a contaminated product, it is possible to only start seeing and feeling effects in up to six weeks.
