Lusaka - Zambia says it has partially lifted a ban on processed meat and diary products from South Africa that were linked to the world’s worst outbreak of listeriosis.

Tests of at-risk foods from South African manufacturers did not reveal the presence of the bacteria that caused the deadly outbreak, Listeria monocytogenes, Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya said in a statement on Tuesday.

The import ban will continue to apply on at-risk foods from two units of Tiger Brands, Enterprise Foods and the company’s Rainbow brand, he said.
