Ready-to-Eat Processed Meat: Source of South Africa's Listeria Outbreak
On Sunday, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi announced that the source of listeriosis, which has claimed at least 180 lives, has been found in Polokwane and Germiston.
Parent company Tiger Brands has responded, saying it has not been provided with any evidence to show there is a direct link between the listeriosis deaths and the company's products.
The company has nevertheless recalled all exported products and says it has taken immediate action and corrective steps to address the listeriosis outbreak.
"Chain stores should emulate measures put in place by the South African government to recall cold and meat products supplied by the firm", Zambia's high commission in South Africa said in a statement. Zambia banned imports of South African processed meat, dairy products, vegetables and fruit. "A recent member-survey about facilities and products tested confirmed this", he said in a statement.
"I already packed my kids' lunch with this product, so I'm shocked", said Tshepo Makhura, a 37-year-old call centre agent, who had returned to one store to demand a refund.

"RCL Foods is treating the outbreak "...as a crisis internally..." but noted "...that the specific strain of the pathogen responsible for the outbreak has not been isolated to the Wolwehoek facility". Astral said it produced fresh and frozen chicken, not polonies and items linked to the outbreak.
Several retailers including Pick n Pay, Shoprite Checkers and Woolworths have publicly stated that they are removing Enterprise processed cold meat products and Rainbow Chicken polony from their shelves and have requested customers who have purchased any of these products from them, to return them to a local store for a refund. RCL Foods fell more than 6 percent but later recovered to trade down just 0.5 percent at 17.11 rand. "I would rather go back to peanut butter and jam".
"We are committed to ensuring that all Enterprise products will be recalled".
The Enterprise unit of Tiger Brands had "a very strong brand in meat", he said, adding:"In the short term consumers will switch to other forms of protein".
