Deputy Director for communicable diseases in the Ministry of Health and Child Care Dr Isaac Phiri told The Herald that they have dispatched teams to inspect ready-to-eat cold meats particularly those imported from South Africa, that are being sold in supermarkets and in the informal sector following a ban after traces of Listeria where found in some polony brands.
Dr Phiri said teams are on the look out for anyone selling polony made by Enterprise by Tiger brands and Rainbow Chickens. He said so far they have not come across the brands. Said Dr Phiri:
We have dispatched teams to our local supermarkets, tuck-shops and even on the streets to monitor anyone selling this particular brand, Enterprise by Tiger brands. So far we have not come across any of this brand.
