JOHANNESBURG - At least some African countries say they still trust South African products, despite the listeriosis outbreak the country is currently facing. 

183 people have died in South African in what the World Health Organisation has called the biggest listeriosis outbreak on record, and which has been traced to processed meat. 

Ministers of Health from South Africa, Botswana, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, and Namibia met on Thursday and Malawi and Lesotho said they still trust South African-produced products.
