Nearly immediately, retailers such as Pick n Pay, Woolworths and Shoprite began removing cold-meat products off their shelves following the announcement, with the National Consumer Commission issuing a recall notice in terms of Section 60 (2) of the Consumer Protection Act.
This follows an announcement by the country's health minister Aaron Motsoaledi and the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD) on Sunday that the source of the outbreak was an Enterprise facility in Polokwane. To this end, we have, with immediate effect, undertaken a full national recall of the identified Enterprise ready-to-eat chilled processed meat product range.

The outbreak has been finally traced by the government to the Enterprise Food factory in Polokwane. "This includes monitoring and testing for the detection and management of pathogens, viruses and bacteria, including listeria".
The outbreak of listeriosis is one of the largest in the world, claiming 180 lives to date.
The company was also recalling all its polony brands. Polony products have tested positive for Listeria, but the sequence types of the isolates are not ST6.
