CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians licence # 4L6MMKMP of 2805463 Ontario Limited (also doing business as TruHarvest Meats) under the Safe Food for Canadian Regulations

Effective July 19, 2021, the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence of 2805463 Ontario Limited (also doing business as TruHarvest Meats) was reinstated.

June 30, 2021, Ottawa

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence # 4L6MMKMP of 2805463 Ontario Limited (also doing business as TruHarvest Meats) under the Safe Food for Canadian Regulations, a slaughter facility located in Toronto, Ontario, effective 23:59 June 25, 2021.

While the suspension is in effect, the licence holder may not conduct any activity for which SFC licence # 4L6MMKMP was issued.

The CFIA suspended the licence because the operator failed to implement effective corrective measures for non-compliances in accordance with the relevant provisions of Part 4 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 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
