The South African Human Rights Commission said that it had noted with concern messages circulating on social media which claimed that the possible contamination of noodles was the result of tampering with the products by foreign nationals.
SAHRC further reminded the public in their statement that the Department of Health and South African Police Services were still investigating the possible contamination.
“At this stage there is no evidence to suggest any possible tampering or any link with foreign-owned businesses. Should there be cause for concern, the authorities will communicate this,” the SAHRC said in a statement.
The commission said that suggestions that the tragic deaths of five children in two different provinces were the result of revenge by foreign nationals were irresponsible and had no basis in fact.
