THE big­gest ever out­break of lis­te­rio­sis is tak­ing place in South Africa. The in­fec­tion is caught from lis­te­ria, a bac­te­ria that is found in raw meat, un­washed veg­eta­bles and some dairy prod­ucts. Al­though it’s a rare ill­ness, in some cases lis­te­rio­sis can prove deadly. There have been 820 con­firmed cases and 82 deaths in South Africa so far.
