CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence of 2805465 Ontario Ltd under the Safe Food for Canadian Regulations
Effective January 12, 2022, the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence of 2805465 Ontario Ltd. was reinstated.
December 31, 2021, Ottawa
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence # 8XVJ3BY8 of 2805465 Ontario Ltd under the Safe Food for Canadian Regulations, a small sized meat processing plant located in Toronto, Ontario, effective December 24, 2021.
While the suspension is in effect, the licence holder may not conduct any activity for which SFC licence # 8XVJ3BY8 was issued.
The CFIA suspended the licence because the operator failed to comply with sections 86(1), 88 and 89(1) of the Safe Food for Canadians Act. The operator did not demonstrate effective implementation of the Preventive Control Plan (PCP) nor provide the documents to substantiate implementation of that PCP.
There is no food recall associated with this suspension.
Licence holders are responsible for ensuring that they comply with Canada's food laws. The CFIA is committed to enforcing those laws.
The licence suspension will be lifted if the CFIA determines that corrective measures have been taken by the company. If corrective action is not taken within 90 days after suspension, the CFIA may cancel the licence. The CFIA may also cancel the licence on other grounds set out in section 39 of the SFCR. Cancellation can occur after the licence holder has been notified of the grounds for cancellation and provided with an opportunity to be heard.
Safe Food for Canadians licences can be suspended:
- for failure to comply with the Safe Food for Canadians Act, the Food and Drugs Act and their related regulations
- for default of payment of any fee related to the licence
- if risk of injury to the public may result from continuing to conduct the licensed activity
