JOHANNESBURG - Consumers have started returning processed meats to retailers.

Dozens of irate customers gathered at Enterprise's factory shop in Germiston to demand refunds.

Meanwhile, food giant Tiger Brands won't comment just yet on the listeriosis outbreak.

It owns the Enterprise Foods plant in Polokwane which has been identified as the source of the outbreak.

Officials from Tiger Brands and the National Consumer Commission will meet about the matter on Monday.

Major retailers are also removing polony, viennas, russians and other ready-to-eat products for now.

The National Consumer Commission blames the outbreak on poor hygiene.

The DA wants Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi to probe the allegations.

It says Motsoaledi must ensure strict measures are in place for the food industry.
