CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence of Arctic Pearl Ice and Cold Storage Ltd.
December 1, 2020, Ottawa
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the Safe Food for Canadians licence #9HFNLVRD of Arctic Pearl Ice and Cold Storage Ltd., located in Richmond, BC, effective November 12, 2020.
During a licence suspension, licence holders may not conduct any activity that is identified in their licence.
There is no food recall associated with this suspension.
The CFIA suspended the licence because the licence holder failed to comply with Part 4 and 5, sections 84(1), 84(2), and 90(1) of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) regarding recall processes, traceability and labelling.
Licence holders are responsible for ensuring they comply with Canada's food laws. The CFIA is committed to enforcing those laws.
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
The licence suspension will be lifted if the CFIA determines that corrective measures have been taken by the licence holder. If corrective actions are 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.
The CFIA publishes SFC licence suspensions and cancellations on its website.
