November 26, 2014: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the fish and seafood import licence of 9241-5942 Québec Inc. (HMIG International) effective November 24, 2014. The importing company is located in Montreal, Quebec.

There is no food recall associated with this suspension.

The import licence was suspended because the company contravened sections 5 and 6(2.1)(b) to (d) of the Fish Inspection Regulations. The owner did not provide the necessary documents to allow import of its tuna products and did not make its products readily accessible to the CFIA for inspection.

The company may not import fish products into Canada while its import licence is suspended.

An appeal can be requested within 60 days of suspension of the licence. This request must be accompanied by an acceptable, written corrective action plan.

Licences and registrations of federally registered establishments or companies can be suspended or cancelled for failing to comply with relevant CFIA Acts and Regulations. The CFIA publishes a list of suspensions and cancellations on its web site.
