[LISTEN] 'Tiger Brands can still be held liable in listeriosis case'
While Tiger Brands is exploring the sale of its value-added meat products business, the company can still be held liable for the 2017's listeria outbreak says attorney at Richard Spoor Attorneys Cathrine Marcus.
Marcus says Tiger Brands Limited and Tiger Consumer Brands, who are the main defenders along with Enterprise Foods in a class-action lawsuit, must still answer to any negligence or any intentional harm that may have occurred as a result of their action or inaction at the time.
She adds that whoever takes control of Enterprise Foods would also be taking on the liability.
If Enterprise Foods is sold, Enterprise will still be jointly responsible for any liability related to the outbreak and whoever or whatever entity takes ownership of Enterprise will also be taking up that liability.Cathrine Marcus, Attorney - Richard Spoor Attorneys
