Tons of South African Cold Meat Recalled Over #Listeriosis Fears

More than 3,500 tons of Tiger Brands' Enterprise ready-to-eat, chilled meat products have been recalled as the embattled company awaits the outcome of a report it commissioned on why the ST6 strain of listeria was found at its Polokwane facility. This comes as the Namibian ministry of health reportedly instructed food inspectors to remove products that are likely linked to the foodborne bacteria from shelves in shops across the country.
