The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the licence to operate of Establishment 737, Mannarich Food Inc. in Markham, Ontario.
The CFIA says it “has determined that adequate controls for food safety are not being reliably implemented in the facility on a consistent basis, as required by the Meat 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 company’s capacity to effectively manage food safety risks.”
The company was founded in 1976 to cater to Chinese communities.
Besides its own label products, it markets private label products to supermarkets, foodservice and institutional service clients.
