SPREAD THE WORD: It Is Now Safe To Eat Polony, No More Listeriosis

Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi says the outbreak of Listeria in SA is over.

According to Motsoaledi there’s been no new cases of Listeria in the last 3 months. 

Enterprise and Rainbow Chicken were issued recall notices for their products, following the outbreak, which led to retailers like Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Checkers and Woolworths recalling a selection of their products as well as housebrand processed meat products.
Motsoaledi   also said that the battle against  Listeriosis cost,  including the testing of every factory, about R12million, which included a R1.2million contribution from the World Health Organisation.
