Clarification on Recall Exercise by Tiger Brands

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) wishes to clarify on a press statement it released on 28th September 2021 which stated in its second paragraph that, “Tiger Brands of South Africa was ordered by the COMESA Competition Commission (CCC) to recall all Tiger Brands KOO and Hugo Branded vegetable products that were manufactured between 1st May 2019 and 5th May 2021.” 

The Commission therefore wishes to clarify that Tiger Brands was not ordered by CCC to recall the affected products but rather Tiger Brands undertook a voluntary recall as a precautionary measure. 

Further, the CCPC commends Tiger Brands company for taking such a precautionary measure key in ensuring the safety of consumers in countries in the common market.
