CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence of Bouvry Exports Calgary Ltd.
Effective April 8, 2022, the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence of Bouvry Exports Calgary Ltd. was reinstated.
February 25, 2022, Ottawa
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) suspended the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence #3H7GFH7D of Bouvry Exports Calgary Ltd., in Fort Macleod, Alberta, on February 17, 2022.
While the suspension is in effect, the licence holder may not conduct any activity for which licence #3H7GFH7D was issued.
The CFIA suspended the licence because the licence holder failed to comply with sections 49 and 50(2) of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations with regards to operational sanitation procedures to prevent cross-contamination of food and sections 47(2), 86, 88 and 89(1)(c) of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations with respect to preventive control measures for the detection of E. coli and the detection of temperature deviations in carcasses. In addition, the CFIA was of the opinion that a risk of injury to the public may result if the licence holder continued to conduct the activities identified in the licence.
At this time, there are no related food recalls.
Licence holders are responsible for ensuring they comply with Canada's food laws. The CFIA is responsible for enforcing those laws.
The licence suspension will be lifted if the CFIA determines that corrective measures have been taken by the licence holder. 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 Safe Food for Canadians Regulations. 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; and
- if risk of injury to the public may result from continuing to conduct the licensed activity.
The CFIA publishes licence suspensions and cancellations on its website.
