NATIONAL NEWS - Fast-moving consumer goods company Tiger Brands says that the reports that it's opposed the class actions brought against it are inaccurate.
In a statement on Twitter, the company says two separate applications for certification of a class action have been filed, one by Richard Spoor and one by LHL attorneys.
"As a result, Tiger Brands is faced with two competing class actions which are mutually exclusive. What Tiger Brands is opposing is the fact that two class actions are being brought against us simultaneously. Procedurally, this is not possible."
The class action relates to the listeriosis outbreak which claimed the lives of at least 180 people.
Those who've been affected want bothy Tiger Brands and Enterprise Foods to be found liable for the deaths and injuries caused.
