CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence #9XD46PCB of Fine Choice Foods Ltd. for non-compliances related to control measures
Effective February 4, 2020, the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence of Fine Choice Foods Ltd. was reinstated.
January 6, 2020, Ottawa – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the Safe Food for Canadians licence #9XD46PCB of Fine Choice Foods Ltd., a multi-commodity processing establishment located in Richmond, British Columbia effective December 25, 2019.
While the suspension is in effect, the licence holder may not conduct any activity for which SFC licence #9XD46PCB was issued.
There is no food recall associated with this suspension.
The CFIA suspended the licence because the operator did not implement a preventive control plan in accordance with the relevant provisions of Part 4 of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR).
Licence holders are responsible for ensuring that 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. 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.
The CFIA publishes SFC licence suspensions and cancellations on its website.
