The National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) says Enterprise Foods needs to take responsibility for the listeriosis outbreak that has seen 180 people die.
According to Dr Juno Thomas of the NICD, her organisation found that Enterprise’smonitoringg and safety controls were insufficient.
On Monday, Tiger Brands (Enterprise’s holding company) said it’s preparing for legal action from consumers.
The Minister of Health has said the deadly listeriosis outbreak has been traced to Enterprise processed meat products.
However, the company says there’s nothing linking its products and the deaths.
