CFIA suspends the Safe Food for Canadians license of Fiza’s Delite Ltd.

February 17, 2023, Ottawa

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) suspended the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) license # 4WX9RBTH of Fiza's Delite Ltd. in Saint John, New Brunswick on February 17, 2023.

While the suspension is in effect, the license holder may not conduct any activity for which SFC license # 4WX9RBTH was issued.

The CFIA suspended the license because the license holder failed to comply with section 24 (6) of the Safe Food for Canadians Act with regards to providing assistance and documentation required to assess compliance. There is no recall associated with this suspension.

License holders are responsible for ensuring that they comply with Canada's food laws. The CFIA is responsible for enforcing those laws.

The license suspension will be lifted if the CFIA determines that corrective measures have been taken by the license holder. If corrective action is not taken within 90 days after suspension, the CFIA may cancel the license. The CFIA may also cancel the license on other grounds set out in section 39 of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations. Cancellation can occur after the license holder has been notified of the grounds for cancellation and provided with an opportunity to be heard.

Safe Food for Canadians licenses 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 license; and
  • if risk of injury to the public may result from continuing to conduct the licensed activity

The CFIA publishes licence suspensions and cancellations on its website.
