CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence # 7J9CHFLD of Our Father's Farm under the Safe Food for Canadian Regulations
July 29, 2021, Ottawa
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence # 7J9CHFLD of Our Father's Farm under the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR), a food import and retail facility located in Dundas, Ontario, effective July 26, 2021.
While the suspension is in effect, the licence holder may not conduct any activity for which SFC licence # 7J9CHFLD was issued.
The CFIA suspended the licence because the operator failed to comply with sections 22.1 and 23(13), Food and Drugs Act, and section 27 and 16, Safe Food for Canadians Act, to produce documents or information ordered for a food safety investigation and for obstruction of a CFIA inspector.
There is no food recall associated with this suspension.
Licence holders are responsible for ensuring that they comply with Canada's food laws. The CFIA is committed to enforcing those laws.
The licence suspension will be lifted if the CFIA determines that corrective measures have been taken by the company. 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.
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
