CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence of North American Seafood Inc.
February 14, 2020, Ottawa
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence # 4GHJ4NWK of North American Seafood Inc., a fish and seafood processing establishment in Vancouver, British Columbia, effective February 7, 2020.
While the suspension is in effect, the licence holder may not conduct any activity for which SFC licence # 4GHJ4NWK was issued.
CFIA suspended the licence # 4GHJ4NWK of North American Seafood Inc. for failing to maintain records as required under Part 5 of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR).
There is no food recall associated with this suspension.
Licence holders are responsible for ensuring that they comply with Canada's food laws. The agency 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 agency determines that corrective measures have been taken. If corrective action is not taken within 90 days after suspension, the agency may cancel the licence. The agency 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.
