Ekram Sorken said he had stopped selling vetkoek with polony after the outbreak was announced.
“I decided to stick with selling vetkoek and cheese,” he said.
Sorken said this as Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi last week announced there had been no new cases for the past three months. Independent Online earlier this year reported that listeria had resulted in more than 200 deaths since the National Institute for Communicable Diseases discovered the outbreak last year.
A class action suit against Tiger Brands, which sells processed meat, was instituted.
