The National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) has reported that 412 of the 973 laboratory-confirmed listeriosis cases are babies less than 28 days old.

Of these neonatal cases, 396 had early-onset listeriosis within six days of their birth.

The NICD also noted that 37 more cases had been reported since the recall of meat products manufactured by Enterprise Foods on March 4, this year.

However, it said that the number of laboratory-confirmed cases had declined since the recall./News24
