What is listeriosis?
Listeriosis is caused by taking food contaminated by a bacterium called Listeria monocytogenes. Listeriosis is an uncommon illness but can be deadly if it causes blood poisoning or inflammation of the membranes around the brain.
The South African listeria outbreak has killed 180 people since January 2017, with nearly 1,000 cases reported. The country’s Government has blamed producers of cold meat products for delays in tracing the cause. “This is the largest ever recorded outbreak of this severe form of listeriosis globally,” Peter K. Ben Embarek, who manages the WHO International Food Safety Authorities Network, said.
