TIGER BRANDS INDEPENDENT LAB RESULTS CONFIRM LISTERIA STRAIN AT FACTORY

JOHANNESBURG-  Independent laboratory results have confirmed that the deadly listeria strain was found in one of their factories.

Tiger Brands is currently facing two class-action lawsuits over the listeria outbreak killed 180 people.

Government who earlier this year released their findings of the listeria outbreak were criticized for taking too long to find the cause, linked to the outbreak to polony made by Tiger’s Enterprise Food in Polokwane.

Tiger Brands now says they released the results on Tuesday, the lab results confirmed the LST strain in their factory.

Tiger Brands and Enterprise foods have advised those affected by the outbreak would need to go to court to decide whether they are liable to the deaths and injuries caused. Both companies have also said the court should decided whether the class action should go ahead and particularly which one should go ahead or both will go ahead.
