Canafric loses poultry-processing licence

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) reinstated the licence it suspended Oct. 2 for Canafric Inc., a producer of poultry and meat-filled pie products and entrees, located in Burlington, Ont.

The company`s licence was suspended because it failed to meet regulatory requirements outlined in its Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) program. 

In addition, the operator failed to properly store products, in violation of the Meat Inspection Regulations.

There has been no food recall associated with this licence suspension.

Canafric regained its licence Oct. 21 after the CFIA deemed it had implemented “the necessary corrective measures” and regained the CFIA’s confidence “in the company's capacity to effectively manage food safety risks.”
