Govt To Engage South Africa Over Contaminated Tinned Fish

Industry and Commerce Deputy Minister Raj Modi urged people to be cautious when buying tinned fish, especially the Pilchards brand imported from South Africa.

This comes after West Point Processors recalled their 400-gramme cans last Saturday, citing a canning deficiency that may make the product unfit for human consumption. Said, Modi:

We are telling people to be aware of the dangers of consuming such food.

We are advising retailers that may have the affected products to withdraw them from the shelves and list them.

We will engage our South African counterparts so that we can be able to return the contaminated cans and ensure the affected retailers can be refunded.

The recalled Pilchard cans have batch codes starting with ZST29 and ZSC29.

Meanwhile, Acting Secretary for Health and Child Care Dr Gibson Mhlanga on Thursday said there has not been any case of the products being recalled in Zimbabwe and the issue of faulty canning could be a domestic issue for South Africa.
