Human rights lawyer Richard Spoor wants families of the victims of the listeriosis outbreak to join a class action lawsuit he is launching against Tiger Brands.
Spoor says there is overwhelming evidence that contamination happened at the company’s factory.
Proving causation, he says, is the challenge.
Tiger Brands denies responsibility for the largest listeriosis outbreak the world has ever seen, which claimed 180 lives.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Spoor.
