4 Mar 2018, Cape Town: Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has announced that scientists have traced the source of the present outbreak of listeriosis to an Enterprise Foods facilities and a Rainbow Foods facility.
Over 180 people have died of listeriosis since January 2017 and more than 900 cases have been reported.
