Update for labelling of foodservice packaged products during the COVID-19 pandemic
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has extended the temporary enforcement flexibility for non-food safety labelling requirements for foodservice packaged products.
A notice to industry regarding this temporary enforcement flexibility was initially posted on April 6, 2020 with a 90 day duration. Following feedback from industry, the CFIA has extended the period of flexibility for another 60 days, to September 5, 2020.
All requirements that were outlined in the April 6 notice continue to apply during this extended period.
The CFIA's long-standing enforcement and compliance policy is to respond to non-compliance with fairness, impartiality and transparency. The CFIA continues to do so with the additional considerations raised by COVID-19.
