Zimbabwe says it will join its neighbours in banning imports of processed meat products from South Africa after a deadly listeria outbreak there.

South Africa’s government has blamed a sausage known as polony for the listeria poisoning which has killed 180 people. It advised people not to eat any processed meat.

It ordered a recall of the product, prompting shops to clear their shelves.
