The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has suspended the licence to operate of Establishment 409, 732840 Ontario Limited (Patty Palace) in Scarborough, Toronto.
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,” says the CFIA on its website.
The Patty Palace website says it has been in operation since 1977 and sells to supermarket chains, convenience stores, club stores and foodservice companies across Canada and the U.S.
Its products are meats, poultry, cheese and fruit.
