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 listeria bacteria is hard to test for, as it is not homogenously distributed in food.
A listeria outbreak in South Africa that's caused almost 1,000 poisonings - and 180 deaths - has been traced to processed meats, the government said Monday.
The food industry in South Africa was complex and it would be irresponsible to start speculating now about the possible reasons for the listeriosis outbreak, according to Prof Celia Hugo, a microbiologist at Free State University.
"We have contacted all our customers to confirm that the recalled products are removed from their store shelves and will continue to work with authorities to ensure an effective and speedy recall", the announcement said.
"However, we would like parents and the greater school community to remain vigilant as these food items often form part of packed lunches or are sold to learners by external food vendors outside of schools or at tuckshops", said the department. "I don't know, maybe I can get some disease", said taxi driver Bongani Mavuso as he queued outside Enterprise's factory shop in Germiston, Johannesburg to seek a refund. 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. Consumers who stored polony products in their fridges were advised to disinfect them with diluted bleach. "Our products have consistently tested below the 10 CFUs/g testing".
