Manitoba egg plant cleared to re-open

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has cleared Clouston Farms of St. Andrews, Manitoba, to resume egg-industry operations.

The agency suspended Clouston’s licence in December for failure to comply with orders to improve sanitation and food safety.

Judging from the release of CFIA documents via Access to Information, it has been rare for the CFIA to suspend the licence of an egg-grading or egg-processing facility, even after repeated identification of deficiencies.
