"We are removing products from our stores that may be linked to the Listeriosis outbreak", Pick n Pay, one of the largest chain stores in the country, said in a statement. Listeria was also traced to a Rainbow chicken facility in the Free State, but further tests were needed as the sequence type was not yet known.

MacDougall said although the National Consumer Commission ordered Enterprise Foods to recall three products‚ the company had made a decision to be extra vigilant and voluntary recall all products produced at its facilities in Germiston‚ Gauteng‚ and Polokwane in Limpopo.

In statements to reporters yesterday, Motsoaledi called on people to avoid consuming sausages and similar products that might be contaminated, and said that other facilities of the company are under investigation, and tests are being made to determine if their products contain the risky bacteria.

On Jan. 12, a pediatrician treated nine school children for gastroenteritis.

South African public health officials, along with three technical advisers from the Geneva, Switzerland-based World Health Organization, visited a food production facility in Polokwane and conducted extensive food and environmental sampling, according to Motsoaledi.

"Hortgro believes it is a relief that the source has been found".

What are your local supermarkets doing about products linked to listeriosis? "The company has furthermore sent its samples to an external laboratory to test for the strain itself and should receive the results tomorrow [March 5]".

Parent company Tiger Brands has responded, saying it has not been provided with any evidence to show there is a direct link between the listeriosis deaths and the company's products. It can contaminate foods that come in contact with it.

Since January 2017, 948 people have contracted listeriosis which is caused by bacteria from soil, water, vegetation and animal feces which can contaminate fresh food - notably fresh meat.

RCL Foods manufactures a broad line of private label food products.
