Dear Valued Customer,
Following the media statement issued by the Minister of Health on 4 March 2018 relating to the recent outbreak of Listeriosis in South Africa, Bidfood management and operational teams have taken the following precautionary measure to limit the risk and potential exposure of our customers to product manufactured both by Tiger Brands –Enterprise, Polokwane facility as well as the RCL Foods -Wolwehoek facility. Bidfood is deeply concerned about this tragic situation and the effect it has had on many South African consumers.
As of yesterday, 4th March 2018, all products produced in these facilities have been blocked nationally in our system and no orders will be able to be placed or stock distributed to our customers. All stock items of the affected product lines have been isolated and withdrawn from stock within our branches, awaiting the manufacturer’s instructions.
Bidfood will co-ordinating the necessary uplift and recall of implicated product lines that may have been distributed to our customers (please click here to see list of items). The Bidfood sales consultants will assist with the uplift of any of the affected product lines from our customers.
