November 23, 2017, Ottawa: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the licence to operate of Establishment 6056, ECAF East Coast Atlantic Fisheries Ltd., effective November 20, 2017. The company is located in West Pubnico, Nova Scotia.

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. The company has failed to correct deficiencies previously identified through CFIA inspections.

There is no recall associated with this suspension.

The company 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 or cancelled for failure to comply with relevant CFIA Acts and Regulations. The CFIA publishes a list of suspensions and cancellations on its web site.
