Human rights lawyer Richard Spoor wants families of the victims of the listeriosis outbreak to join a class action lawsuit he is launching against Tiger Brands.
Spoor says there is overwhelming evidence that contamination happened at the company’s factory.
Proving causation, he says, is the challenge.
