Effective November 26, 2018, the registration of Big Lobster Seafood Inc. was reinstated and the establishment was allowed to resume operations under ongoing inspection by the CFIA.

November 16, 2018, Ottawa: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the federal registration of Establishment 6028, Big Lobster Seafood Inc., in Grand Manan, New Brunswick effective November 15, 2018.

The CFIA has determined that adequate controls for food safety are not being reliably implemented in the facility on a consistent basis, as required by the Fish Inspection Regulations.

There is no recall associated with this suspension.

All products currently at this facility are under CFIA detention and control.

Big Lobster Seafood Inc. will not be able to resume operations until it has fully implemented the necessary corrective actions and the CFIA is fully confident in the facility's capacity to effectively manage food safety risks.

Licences and registrations of federally registered establishments or companies can be suspended, cancelled or refused renewal for failure to comply with relevant CFIA Acts and Regulations. See a complete list of suspensions and cancellations.
