The Public Health boss warned retails outlets against placing the products on their shelves for sale noting that it must stop with immediate effect.

What is Listeriosis?

Listeriosis is food poisoning caused by eating foods contaminated with the Listeria monocytogenes - a bacteria found in soil and water and some animals, including poultry and cattle.

The outbreak was announced in South Africa this week after several children were presented with gastroenteritis in Soweto.
