This is how much South Africa’s listeriosis victims may get, lawyers say

2018-12-05 10:00

There are some 1,000 claimants in the class action lawsuit triggered by Listeria traced back to Tiger Brands' Enterprise polony factory. If they are all successful in those claims, best-guess estimates suggest they will be paid between R100 million and R2 billion.

Tiger Brands could lose R50 million a month, every month, if nobody wants to eat polony again – on top of R802 million in possible listeriosis costs
