Botswana recalls imports of South African processed meat over listeria

GABORONE (Reuters) - Botswana on Monday recalled imports of processed meat products from South Africa after a deadly listeria outbreak was linked to a factory there, the ministry of health said in a statement.

Botswana’s move follows a similar ban by Mozambique and Zambia in the wake of the outbreak that has claimed 180 lives in South Africa.
