Bouvry Exports loses CFIA licence

Bouvry Exports Calgary Ltd. has lost its Canadian Food Inspection Agency licence for because of food safety issues.

The company, based at Fort McLeod, exports red meats, including horse meat.

The CFIA said it “suspended the licence because the licence holder failed to comply with sections 49 and 50(2) of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations with regards to operational sanitation procedures to prevent cross-contamination of food and sections 47(2), 86, 88 and 89(1)(c) of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations with respect to preventive control measures for the detection of E. coli and the detection of temperature deviations in carcasses. In addition, the CFIA was of the opinion that a risk of injury to the public may result if the licence holder continued to conduct the activities identified in the licence.”
