Fin24

Cape Town – Retail companies wasted very little time on Monday pulling Enterprise Foods’ polony and vienna products from the shelves following parent company Tiger Brands’ recall of the products in an effort to contain the public’s risk to listeriosis.

Minister of Health Aaron Motsoaledi announced on Sunday that the source of the latest outbreak of listeriosis was traced back to an Enterprise Foods facility in Polokwane Limpopo Province.

Woolworths acknowledged to Fin24 that Enterprise Food supplies meats for the products it was recalling, necessitating that some of the house brand products be pulled from the shelves or taken back for a refund.
