Listeriosis: More questions from the outbreak

2018-03-15 06:00

The Listeriosis outbreak has raised an important issue: the secrecy that surrounds deals concerning manufacturing so called in-house or no-name brands.

Typically, labels on no-name brands only state the area they were made and for which supermarket they were packaged.

Consumers will have no idea who the manufacturer of those products are.

I believe it’s the supermarkets’ duty to inform customers if its products are packed by a company that’s reportedly involved in the outbreak.

Shouldn’t supermarkets be required to also remove those products from shelves? They should also give refunds in such a scenario.
