Rainbow and Enterprise food recall

Pick And Pay as well as Woolworths are recalling processed foods distributed by Enterprise and Rainbow after Minister Aaron Motsoaledi announced on Sunday 4 March 2018 that the source of the Listeriosis outbreak in South Africa has been identified.

The source of the Listeriosis outbreak is said to be the Enterprise production plant in Polekwane. All ready to eat meat products such as russian sausages and polony manufactured at the Rainbow facility in Sasolburg will also be removed from the Pick And Pay shelves. As a precaution, Pick And Pay will also remove their branded polony and chicken manufactured by Rainbow.

A spokesperson for Pick And Pay said that all food preparation areas and fridges in their stores will be properly sanitised to prevent cross contamination.

Minister Motsoaledi named the Enterprise food production plant in Polokwane‚ Limpopo Province‚ as the confirmed source of the specific strain of listeria‚ which has caused the biggest documented Listeriosis outbreak in the world. To date 948 confirmed cases has been confirmed, causing 180 deaths.

Members of the public are advised to refrain from consuming any meat products sold as ready to eat, due to the fact that Listeria on the exterior of polony packaging can easily be distributed to other food products such as cold meats, viennas, sausages that do not require any form of cooking.
